Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was served with legal papers outside of a Los Angeles night club on Wednesday night, according to TMZ.

Manziel is reportedly being sued for allegedly damaging an apartment that he rented out with friends before trashing it during an April party.

“We're just having a good time. We'll deal with that at a different time,” Manziel said in a video captured by TMZ as he exited the club. “It will all work itself out, I promise you that.”

Manziel was released by the Browns in March after a long string of off-field incidents and has since been charged with misdemeanor assault, allegedly rupturing the eardrum of his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley.

The incident took place in January, and the NFL continues to investigate the circumstances. Two different agents have parted ways with Manziel, and he will be subject to the NFL’s conduct policy if or when he returns to football.

Manziel will have a hearing on June 24, where he is expected to plead not guilty.
