Johnny Manziel foots bill for 300 shots of whiskey on draft night (vid)


With the 2016 NFL Draft underway Thursday night in Chicago, a photo surfaced online that showed what Johnny Manziel had going on only two years removed from him gracing the draft night stage: Watching coverage of the big event from a bar in Columbus, Ohio.

But Manziel’s rather sad draft night outing didn’t end with bellying up to a bar by himself. TMZ reports that the unemployed quarterback was later spotted at Dahlia Bar and Lounge, another establishment in Columbus, sometime after the first round of the draft concluded. The NFL flameout reportedly was the life of the party courtesy of footing the bill for 300 shots of whiskey — and apparently a few Miller Lites for good measure — for his fellow patrons.

Manziel can be heard giving his boozy instructions, which involved a whole bunch of shots of Fireball and the aforementioned Miller Lites.

A source tells TMZ that Manziel spent much of the evening in the DJ booth with the tour DJ for Justin Bieber, who had a concert in Columbus the same night. Eyewitness accounts say Manziel took in Bieber’s show as well on Thursday night.

Manziel also attended Bieber’s show in Cleveland earlier this week on the same day he was indicted on domestic violence charges in Texas.

Suffice to say, the downward spiral Manziel has been in since that night in 2014 he was drafted 22nd overall by the Cleveland Browns is nothing short of sadly stupefying.
