Johnny Manziel accused of sending penis in hot dog bun pic to woman in $25M lawsuit
In a lawsuit filed in Florida that at first glance fails to pass the smell test, Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel is being sued by Samantha Schacher for sexual harassment. Ms. Schacher claims in a court filing seeking a restraining order that she has been left emotionally distraught due to Manziel’s repeated harassment, including sending her disturbing and sexually suggestive cell phone photos.
So disturbed is Schacher is she is seeking $25 million in punitive damages for the distress caused by Manziel’s alleged randy behavior.
The suit, filed on May 16 and first reported by Forbes’ Darren Heitner, includes some potentially troubling allegations, if they didn’t appear so patently ludicrous. It’s a near certainty that the suit is a total hoax and as Pro Football Talk correctly argues, probably should never have been accepted and subsequently filed by the clerk of court.
But a review of the allegations contained in the filing leads one to believe this lawsuit is about as frivolous as they come.
The primary accusation contained in the suit involves Manziel sending the woman naked selfies, behavior that began around Valentine’s Day in 2013. Manziel is accused of sending the woman a photograph of his penis placed in a hot dog bun.
Either the woman just watched the 1980s classic Tom Hanks comedy “Bachelor Party” or Manziel fancies himself a protege of “Nick the Dick” (unfortunately, the “Penis in Bun” scene isn’t on YouTube).
Schacher also claims in the document (available for perusal here) rife with spelling and grammatical errors that the harassment has been constant. A lengthy excerpt follows below, as transcribed by Larry Brown Sports:
On Christmas Eve 2013, Manziel sent me a Instagram photo of himself naked to me Facebook with Manziel putting a hotdog bun between his penis, smiling, calling me “Ho, Ho, Ho,” then called up and told me he wanted a threesome with Dr. Drew.
During last year’s Nathan Hotdog Eating Contest, defendant Manziel sent me a naked photo of him with a ruler next to his erect penis that measured 4 1/2 inches, while holding up a sign “You know you want me, Samantha.”
Defendant keeps asking me to strip for him at his boy, LeBron James’ crip in Miami.
Manziel called me up drunk on Halloween of 2013 and confessed to me that he cheated on his college exams.
Manziel told me if I don’t want him because his penis is small, when he gets drafted by the NFL he will get a penis enlargement and he’ll be Long John Silvers.
Johnny Manziel refers to his penis as his Vienna Sausage and told me good things come from small packages.
Johnny Manziel said he Skyes with Judereon Clowney in South Carolina, and Clowney sent Manziel a Pic of is penis which was 9 inches, and Manziel showed it to me on Skype and asked me if I could handle that monster.
Manzeil sent me a homemade video of himself at Walt Disney World on “It’s a Small World” ride in the Magic Kingdom, and while the song is on, he puts the camera down and unbuttons his pants, pulls his penis out and jingles his penis to the music.
Um, yeah. It gets worse from there. Laughable, even, a response shared by Manziel’s agent, Erik Burkhardt.
This joke “lawsuit” is obviously 1000000% fake and/ or frivolous. Embarrassing I even have say this after reading the nonsense.

Yeah, most people are going to shrug off these borderline accusations, but it looks like this possibly unhinged woman will unfortunately get her chance to use and abuse the legal process before in all likelihood the lawsuit is dismissed with prejudice. The suit was legitimately filed, being confirmed by Kristi Dosh.
Manziel suit was definitely filed. I just double-checked for the filing in the court system: pic.twitter.com/91gJ75YMdf
