Texas A&M Football: Johnny Manziel Photographed in Club with Champagne

Emily O'Neill Elmer@emilystormsCorrespondent IIJanuary 7, 2013

Uh-oh. Texas A&M star freshman quarterback Johnny "football" Manziel was caught by TMZ inside a 21-plus club (Manziel is 20), no doubt celebrating his 41-13 victory in the 2013 Cotton Bowl Classic against Oklahoma.  

To make matters worse, he was photographed holding open bottles of Dom Perignon. Though the photos do not show Manziel actually sipping the expensive champagne, the bottle in his hand is over half empty. 

The Dallas club where the incident went down, Avenu, is a 21-and-over club, so both he and the establishment could face legal issues. 

 

The story has already made its way across the pond. British tabloid The Daily Mail is reporting on the underage drinking debacle as well. 

This is not the first bout with underage drinking for the young quarterback. Manziel was arrested in June of 2012 after a fight erupted outside a Texas bar and Manziel presented officers at the scene with not one, but two fake ID's. 

Manziel was contrite after the arrest, telling Robert Cessna of aggiesports.com "I've had to make a lot of changes in my life, I'm really more aware of my surroundings and what goes on in my life, and I've surrounded myself with a great group of people."

Apparently not, Johnny. In the future, be a little more "aware of your surroundings" and watch out for the cameras, or better yet, don't drink while you're underage. You're too good of a football player to ruin your career with off-the-field antics.
