Johnny Manziel's entourage allegedly involved in assault
Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel's entourage allegedly assaulted a man at a downtown Cleveland hotel, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Chris Gonos told police he was struck in the face and pushed and attacked when he approached Manziel and told him, "I'm the biggest Browns fan ever, I love you, I want to give you a hug."
Gonos suffered a swollen lip and a swollen right eye, according to police.
A hotel worker was also struck, according to a police report.
The Browns issued a statement making it clear they're unhappy with the situation.
"We are aware of the incident and are in the process of gathering additional information in order to gain a complete understanding of what occurred,'' general manager Ray Farmer said. "Nonetheless, the time of the incident is concerning to us. We continually stress to all of our players the importance of sound decision-making in an effort to avoid putting themselves in these types of situations. We have addressed this appropriately with the player and will have no further comment at this time."
