Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel threw a water bottle at a fan who heckled him after he refused to give him an autograph on Sunday, according to police. The incident occurred near the pool at Four Seasons Hotel.
No charges were filed and there was no evidence that alcohol played any part in the QB’s actions, Irving public information officer James McLellan told ESPN.
“There was a kid — I’ll call him a kid, he was 18 — at the pool area,” McLellan said. “The kid had been asking [Manziel] for a couple hours for his autograph, and he wouldn’t give it to him.
“That turned into badgering on the kid’s part, and it reached the point where Johnny Manziel threw a bottle of water at the kid. I don’t know if it hit him. I guess I would say that ramped it up a bit.”
One of Manziel’s friends stepped between the quarterback and the 18-year-old.
“That’s about the time hotel security and our officers stepped in,” McLellan said. “Try to put a stop to it.”
A police report was not written up about the incident. The Browns dismissed it as a non-story and said Manziel did not do anything wrong.
