Manziel’s partying with Bieber carries a very specific legal risk

Bieber Getty Images

In defending his work hard, play harder approach to life as a millionaire in his early 20s, Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel says he has done nothing wrong.

The key word to attach to that is “yet.”

Even if he never does anything wrong, Manziel risks a wrong place/wrong time outcome in which someone seeking 15 minutes of fame and/or 15 pounds of cash accuses him of doing something he didn’t do.

His most recent high-profile act of partying — a visit to Justin Bieber’s house only a few days after reports surfaced that the Browns want Manziel to tone it down — has a wrinkle that could go awry for Manziel, if he makes a habit of hanging out with young pop stars.  Per a source who briefly attended the soiree, underage girls were present at the Bieber party.

Apparently, Bieber’s friends have a habit of showing up with underage girls, which in and of itself isn’t against the law.  But if something happens between a sufficiently overage male and an underage girl, the overage male can go to jail even if the underage girl convinced him that she’s not underage.  (If you think this is far-fetched, Google Mark Chmura.)

Or an underage girl can falsely accuse the overage male of doing something that didn’t happen.  Which at a minimum could turn the overage male’s life upside down until the charges are resolved.  And there’s a chance — as Brian Banks found out — that lies will be believed and an innocent man will go to jail for several years.

Again, there’s no evidence that Manziel has ever done anything wrong.  But that moth apparently doesn’t realize the potential power of the flame he’s currently dancing with.

    Manziel is the biggest D’bag to ever enter the NFL. Hope his 15 minutes of fame are soon over.

  4. mvp43 says: Jul 2, 2014 10:23 AM

    No excuses Cleveland!!

    What did you think you were going to get?

    Way to screw the fanbase once again.

  5. grndizzle says: Jul 2, 2014 10:25 AM

    I used to defend Johnny Football, but hanging out with Bieber is indefensible.

    “Before I do anything I ask myself “Would an idiot do that?” And if the answer is yes, I do not do that thing.” Dwight Schrute.

    All you need to do is replace the work “idiot” with Beiber.

    Have been trying to give Manziel the benefit of the doubt, until I read this, now I think he’s an idiot…

    Chmura never claimed the girl lied about her age. He knew her previously as she had been the family babysitter.

    You’d think Bieber’s reps would be more worried about headlines like “Bieber sighted hanging out with third string Browns QB”.

    Can we stop already? When he breaks the law let’s talk about it then!! How about talking about Smith from San Fran who made a threat in an Airport, but nothing happened to him? Or about someone else who broke the law? Enough of talking about what players are doing on their own time!!!!!

    Mark Chumura was and is an innocent man.

    Doctors testified the girls hymen was in tact, and the attorneys demonstrated conclusively that the girls story was a fabrication.
    It was all on Court TV.

    The NFL never suspended Chumura because of the false accusation.

    Only uniformed viking followers think Mr. Chumura did anything improper.

    maybe that’s what this guy needs to wake him up. He doesn’t appear to be the sharpest tool in the woodshed.
    Sometimes reality needs to smack you in the face before you realize what an a$$ you’ve been.

  21. firstclasspack says: Jul 2, 2014 10:52 AM

    I’m guessing he went there for the girls in the first place….not to hang out with Justin Bieber. Probably not the underage ones but I doubt this guy will have much self control when they start throwing themselves at him and it is a recipe for disaster. Better not to put yourself in that position.

  22. buckethead1 says: Jul 2, 2014 10:53 AM

  23. skinsfan28 says: Jul 2, 2014 10:54 AM

    Didn’t Bieber just try to “hot box” an entire floor of a hotel in LA? Hopefully Johnny was smarter than he looks and kept clear of the weed while partying there.

  24. fordmandalay says: Jul 2, 2014 10:57 AM

    Wow, if Manziel does something wrong and his NFL career goes away, he’ll have to go back to being the spoiled child of a wealthy Texas oil baron. The horror!

    I was fairly ambivalent on Manziel — that is until I just learned that he parties with Bieber.

  28. jayhawk6 says: Jul 2, 2014 11:04 AM

    Johnny Football may think that “…what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”, but Florio’s advice is spot on. And, it’s free.

    Is there any over/under yet on whether JF will listen?

  29. pj1983a says: Jul 2, 2014 11:05 AM

    There’s also Bieber’s propensity to have drugs and/or alcohol present at his parties. Even if the girls don’t accuse Manziel of anything, if a cop shows up, he could be charged with possession or providing alcohol to a minor. Bieber himself is only 20, so just the two of them drinking together is a risk.

  30. stillers213 says: Jul 2, 2014 11:09 AM

    I think it’s a match made in heaven. They’re both overrated and attention seekers.

  31. accipiterq says: Jul 2, 2014 11:09 AM

    WHO. CARES? I know this will get downvoted/deleted….but honestly…he’s hanging out with other famous people. This has NOTHING to do with his performance on the field. You guys sound jealous more than anything; “Oh I may not be a millionaire NFL quarterback…but at least I don’t hang out with BIEBER!!!! HURRRR”. Grow up. Manziel is what, 22 years old? EVERY GUY IN THE NFL IS DOING THE SAME THING AT THIS AGE. Partying, hooking up, having fun. All these 40 year olds on here that are bitter they didn’t get to do the same are just pathetic. Handle your own life, and your own business, and stop worrying about what some kid is doing.

    I wonder if Manziel will start wearing a glove on his right hand like his buddy Biebs.

    What happens in Bieber, stays in Bieber

  34. doctorrustbelt says: Jul 2, 2014 11:16 AM

    As much as Manziel is an idiot for hanging out with justin bieber… anyone who doesn’t see his talent translating at the professional level is a bad judge of football talent.

    – Not dumb
    – Great arm
    – Mobile
    – Pass Happy NFL Officiating

    The terrible receiving depth in Cleveland is what will/can/could hamstring him.

  35. kosarkid says: Jul 2, 2014 11:18 AM

    Totally done defending Johnny after hanging out with Bieber. Hope Hoyer steps up his game. I think we’d rather see Johnny partying with OJ Simpson instead of Bieber.

  36. onbucky96 says: Jul 2, 2014 11:24 AM

    Baby Baby Baby Oh No! Admit it America, Manzel is the Anti-Tebow. How we wish we were him. Aside from hanging w/Beebs, that’s regoddamndiculus.

  38. turtlefox1 says: Jul 2, 2014 11:30 AM

    Another stretch of an article to badmouth Manziel. And to generate hatred, tapping in to people’s weaknesses. Too bad. Just listen to some of his interviews rather that knee-jerk respond to some of the candy quotes. He doesn’t appear to be such a bad guy. We’ll see if he changes his behavior in time – because this has become an avalanche.

  39. metalhead65 says: Jul 2, 2014 11:32 AM

    of all the things you people who have accused him of doing I have to say there is no defending of hanging out with a talentless hack like bieber. keep doing what you are doing Johnny except for this.

  40. godofwine330 says: Jul 2, 2014 11:34 AM

    I’m glad the Brian Banks situation was mentioned. Don’t be fooled. Innocent until proven guilty is just a saying, but it is far from a fact in the current American way of life, but entirely the opposite. You are guilty until proven innocent, and then likely presumed to be guilty but slick enough to get off if you are proven innocent by many people thereafter.

    I have seen accusations get people fired, and then what was said was proven to be a lie and now the suspected perpetrator is now a victim with no job. It isn’t safe out there, especially not with famous people. JFF better watch out, because I guarantee you that someone, or many people, are watching him right now and trying to concoct ways of relieving him of his $$$, and he is making it easier for them.

    Someone should have sent Keyshawn Johnson over to Bieber’s house and had him drag Manziel’s butt home, by his ear.

    It’s not about being able to judge someone based on whether or not you’ve done it too. The ‘kid’ just signed a multi-million dollar deal to become the face of a franchise. He has million dollar endorsements to his name. He has an entire fanbase hoping he can bring them out of the cellar. It’s his responsibility to be responsible and smart and not succumb to the lifestyle that has gotten many player in trouble and ended careers early. He is acting reckless and risks his career more than he should. Cleveland invested in him and he’s showing them that he simply does not care about being responsible and intelligent, and would rather run risks and put the organization in a bad light. It’s immature and childish. And that is what people are criticizing. And rightfully so.

    Is this what Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, etc were doing as well? Funny, we never read about them like this. Perhaps they were studfing their playbook and watching film. You know the things you need to do to become the best you can possibly be.
    You sound like a 22 year old fool. Grow up..you have no idea what life is all about.

  47. ruggerio says: Jul 2, 2014 11:44 AM

    Personally, I don’t care what he does or doesn’t do. But to those who are saying that he is just having fun and to leave him alone…….its not that this behavior means that he will be gauranteed to screw up sooner or later, its more that this behavior is not what you prefer to see in your star QB. I am in no way comparing this guy to any of the great QB’s, but can you picture any of today’s top guys doing this? Do we hear about Luck or Wilson or Griffen doing this? Did Manning/Brees/Rodgers do this kind of thing. And if they do, clearly they are more careful or discreet about it. The point of this article is not that Manziel shouldn’t be doing these things, its that he is potentially playing with fire. And yes, we have all done irresponsible things. But most of us don’t have an NFL career with millions of dollars to potentially lose over it.

    Reminds me of a player who became a media favorite in the late 60’s early 70’s. Bold , Brash , the king of glitz, girls on his arm, and high life partying. Joe Willie Namath.
    Leave the kid alone. If he needs a swift kick, his employer will most certainly oblige.

  50. justatrophy says: Jul 2, 2014 11:51 AM

    Even though I have been critical of the distractions Johnny football creates, the recent pictures involving Justin Bieber look to be just what the Brown’s asked for.

    I’m guessing the Browns management said something like this, no videos involving foul language or drunken behavior and no pictures involving large bottles of alcohol and ridiculous stunts.

  51. usedjock says: Jul 2, 2014 11:52 AM

    Eutaws, I completely agree. Perhaps he should be showing his employer a little gratitude by respecting their wishes to tone it down? They gave him the chance I am sure he has dreamed of for a very long time and I don’t think it is too much to ask to respect them in return. He also needs to think about his team mates who are getting a little sick and tired of the distracting questions about his lifestyle. Again, Johnny Fratboy needs to think that he is impacting them as well. Respect goes both ways Johnny.

  52. johnnytarr says: Jul 2, 2014 11:57 AM

    How can he be a bigger bust than Leaf? He wasn’t picked nearly in the same spot. He wasn’t even his teams first pick.

    The higher someone is placed on a pedestal, the harder people push to knock them off and see how far they fall. J Football has no chance, as too many people are focused on pushing him off instead of waiting for him to fall on his own. Little people that never played a down of real football that are bitter will bring him down, otherwise they would be wrong, and well, they just can’t have that!

    I did a lot of wild things when I was in college, but I settled down after I got a full-time job. If Johnny D. Football wanted to party all the time, he should have stayed in college. When you make the decision to become a professional, you have to realize that there are responsibilities that come with that. There is no “time off” when you’re a rookie trying to become the face of a franchise.

    Hanging with Bieber is dancing with the devil. He is one extra bottle consumed away from a little hottie saying take me in the other room,the one with all the candy in it..I ,ll make sure you feel real good..Then BAM. A rock star doesn’t have the same contractual agreements that are now in place for Mr Football. Or the same penalties I wonder if this guy even makes it to training camp…I,ll bet the other F.A.and draft picks are looking for their new homes. Settling in to a routine or home packing saying goodbye for the season to their friends and family.Where is the 22nd pick every spear moment he gets. Playing Caligula with the BeeBS…Brian Hoyer our Hometown hero must be laughing his ass off!!!!

  63. crubenst says: Jul 2, 2014 12:25 PM

    The lifestyle goes away if he sucks and only grows if he becomes a super bowl champion. He will succeed because he is motivated by something more powerful than his next contract…. partying with hot chicks.

  64. 12brichandfamous says: Jul 2, 2014 12:26 PM

    I am continually amazed at how many people are getting worked up over this kid.

    I think his agents are pursuing two paths with him:

    1. Football hero
    2. Famous notoriety (e.g. paris hilton, kim kardashian, etc). These people are making money with no discernible skill, so its a great fallback position if plan 1 does not work out.

    As a football fan, I hope he’s number 1. I already ignore number 2, so I just don’t care what he does off the field.

  65. b3nz0z says: Jul 2, 2014 12:29 PM

    God i want him out of the NFL more than i wanted Tebow out. Can the season hurry up so this chumop can get the Chud treatment?

  68. bobby2478 says: Jul 2, 2014 12:33 PM

    Say what you will about Tebow being overrated, but at least that guy was all about football and wasn’t out there making himself a distraction for his team. All he did was be active in religious causes which he believed strongly in. He wasn’t out there in the limelight every chance he got putting himself into questionable situations that could tarnish his image.

    Manziel should know better. Yes he as the right to do whatever he wants, that doesn’t mean it’s smart.

    Like Chris Rock said, “You can drive a car with your feet if you want to, that don’t make it a good friggin idea!”

  69. sterilizecromartie says: Jul 2, 2014 12:39 PM

    I was a big Manziel fan before the draft. Everything he did in college was childs play compared to the things we all probably did at the same age. But, now things should be different for him. He is out of college, with a very important, highly-paying full-time job. He essentially has an entire city praying he is successful over the next decade. The fact that he seems he can’t take one weekend off from partying to spend some extra time studying the playbook really makes me question his decidation. I have done a complete 180 since the draft. I’m sensing bust.

    For the record, Mark Churma was falsely accused and proven so in court. Secondly, he had already played his last down with the Packers prior to being accused so he was not a Packer at the time. And lastly, Churma was a successful football player in his career, something Johnny Football cannot said right now and the way things are looking, will likely never be able to say.

    Unfortunate, all of you followers ride the media’s initiative, to make sure this happens… it’s like uh- oh….here’s somebody who has a personality , and isn’t afraid to say what he thinks , and do what he wants….we must bust his chops and ruin his career so that we can go back to the dull boring norm…..

    Awesome incorporation of a Dwight Schrute quote.

    However, Johnny Manziel is just fine. He’s doing everything we all would probably do, like chill with Mayweather (I know I would). Give the guy a break, bc if he produces, we (y’all) will be making SNL jokes about how awesome he is that he can balance his lifestyle and be a productive QB with all the hype he had going in opposed to the never-ending scrutiny from haters of all denominations.

    Just my thoughts

  81. ssraebel says: Jul 2, 2014 1:14 PM

    Some of the posters want to say “leave him alone he is just a kid doing kid stuff” or “your just jealous and old and bitter” – Manziel is now an employee of a muti-billion dollar organization that is part of the entertainment business. He is no longer a college kid and does not get a free pass for his childish antics. Yes I drank and partied in college but when I stated my career I had responsibilities that also included behavior expectations outside of work. Your behavior outside of work is a reflection on the corporation- ask the fired ex’s that tweet stupid comments. Manziels JOB is to play football and it does not end on the field on Sundays. He sells jerseys and has appearances and all kinds of responsibilities for the organization.

    You are right that I am older but I am not bitter towards Manziel. I am glad my team did not pick him (we picked Bortles) because I want my QB known for working hard to become a top level QB. Partying with Beiber is a poor decision and I think a few weeks from camp studying play books is more important.

    Manziel is now a professional and the immature pleading ” leave him alone” is a child’s thought process. Go back to playing Madden and have your mom do your laundry and stop posting.

    For the record, Chmura was still on the Packer’s roster and was not released until after he was charged with the crime — yes, he was a Packer. And he also admitted that his conduct was inappropriate — after refusing to visit the White House because of the Bill / Monica scandal.

    Gee’s it took you guys long enough for the Daily “Manziel report”. I’ll give you a pass since this article is basically him hypothetically doing something and not actually doing something.

    Can tomorrows be about what would happen if Manziel hypothetically took his best friends dads favorite car on a joyride while skipping class?

    To the ones who says who cares, what manziel is doing hurting his nfl career. Have ever once heard anything about Peyton manning, drew Brees, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Andrew luck, Russell Wilson or RG3 partying like a rock star? Look at their careers and careers to become, 4 of them are elites and get mega contracts every time, 3 are up and coming and soon to be 20mil a year QBs. Nobody’s saying that you can’t have fun during your off time but there’s responsible fun and there’s careless fun. Johnny is having the careless fun that can get you caught up in a legal situation. He’s not putting in the effort to become a good QB in the nfl, he acts like the starting job is already a lock for him. The browns just don’t know how to draft QBs, mistakes after mistakes after mistakes, when will they learn

    Look what happened to “Birdman” Chris Anderson. He almost had his life ruined forever with the setup some underage girl and her family concocted just because he was an easy target with money

    My two favorite train wrecks! Hopefully right into each other, please, please, please!

    So much talk and wasted energy for a guy who hasn’t even played a down yet. I’m a Browns fan and didn’t think Manziel should be drafted by Cleveland, but now that he is, I am rooting for him. As long as he stays out of trouble I don’t care what he does in his off time. It’s all about football and what he does ON the field. Will he hold up, stay in the pocket, make good reads, and most of all win games? Nothing else matters.

    After Joe Flacco signed his contract, he stuck with a crappy car and continued to eat at Olive Garden.

    Cleveland has Celebrity now. Lets hope it works out better for them than it has for Washington DC.

  92. goodellisruiningtheleague says: Jul 2, 2014 1:50 PM

    So you think Manziel is gonna mess with an underage girl?

  93. thenew013 says: Jul 2, 2014 1:53 PM

    LOL yeah she is gonna sue jhonny for rape and get her dad to beat him up….LOL I am sure the exact opposite would happen. She will be in love and daddy will be asking for an autograph.

  94. ragnarthemagnificent says: Jul 2, 2014 1:56 PM

    Jerry Jones is probably kicking himself that he didn’t draft Johnny. Look at all this coverage the ‘boys could be getting!

  95. pillowporkers says: Jul 2, 2014 2:07 PM

    I just don’t get Manziel. He tells everyone to get off his back, and then he goes and hangs out with the walking tabloid Bieber. How immature do you have to be to not realize your actions do affect the stories in the media sometimes? I guarantee if he just went to the bars with his college buddies (without shooting any money phone videos), that wouldn’t make the headlines. Go out and have a good time, but don’t act like you don’t want attention and tell everyone to leave you alone, and then go party with Bieber! Makes no sense.

  96. arrowdead says: Jul 2, 2014 2:10 PM

    it’s fun to think of and make a list of all the football -related things Peyton, Brady and the other top tier QBs are doing to gain a competitive advantage on during the party when Manziel was watching Bieber free style rap or throw things in his pool or whatever they were doing.

  97. christophershearin says: Jul 2, 2014 2:13 PM

    why in the hell is bieber hanging out with underage girls? in all seriousness, why?

  98. bassplucker says: Jul 2, 2014 2:23 PM

    So Johnny Football is not only a d-bag, but a creep. Awesome.

  99. ydousuk says: Jul 2, 2014 2:39 PM

    If Bieber is only 20 years old like was posted above, then old Johnny could end up with a “Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor”…….

  100. justatrophy says: Jul 2, 2014 2:54 PM

    Those who compare Joe Namath with Johnny Manziel really aren’t giving Joe the respect he deserves.

    Broadway Joe was a smooth operator that boldly predicted infamy and had an aura of style and cool that till this day is still admired.

    Johnny football, not so much.

  101. bobby2478 says: Jul 2, 2014 3:56 PM

    I wonder if the Vikings continue to thank their lucky stars they didn’t have what it took to leapfrog Cleveland to take Manziel?

    Word is they wanted Manziel but couldn’t offer what was needed to beat Cleveland to the #22 spot to take him. They ended up “settling” for Bridgewater.

    While Johnny continues to put himself in questionable situations that put his dedication to question, all Bridgewater does the exact opposite. Teddy is the first in the building, the last to leave, and even during time away he’s spending most of his time continuing to study the play book and even get mental reps with the offense by importing the playbook into Madden. He understands the last thing the Vikings need is more drama, and he’s determined to not tarnish his image or create disruption for his teammates.

    Teddy is displaying that he “gets it” and understands what is required to have any chance of becoming a true franchise QB. No matter what level of talent or intelligence you have, you aren’t automatically elite in the NFL. Even if you are Peyton Manning, you became the best by fully dedicating all your time to football and outworking every other guy in the building.

    The Browns offensive line is already perfecting their signals to each other for the good old “Lookout !!! Block”.

    A “Lookout Block” is when an offensive misses his assignment so badly the only thing he can do is yell lookout !!!

    If Johnny Boyziel keeps acting like an immature fool his own team mates will make sure he has a short career.

    Manziel, Bieber, Cyrus = The Joker, Toy-man and Catgirl.

  105. RE LEE says: Jul 2, 2014 4:56 PM

    I remember Johnny compulsively drinking water while the other QB’s and players got drafted. He was crowned to be the #1 but was passed over. He looked quite anxious. I was thinking the poor kid must be embarrassed and was thankful when his name finally got picked. I also thought that because of this he would work hard and show everyone that he’s the best, pretty much the way Tom Brady steeled himself to be the best. Brady did not forget the humiliation and the hurt. Brady was not even over-hyped during his draft. So it baffles me that manziel just carries on like the status of elite will just be automatically conferred to him because he is Johnny Football. He asked Brady once for advice… Brady said that there is no entitlement in football. Johnny should take heed. If you take your job half-as-ed you’ll be down full-as-sed. Johnny starts with champagne spraying, inflatable toy, money phone, now Biebs. Who’s next Kimye?…

  106. bcboncs says: Jul 2, 2014 7:43 PM

    Johnny has no intention of ever being out of the spotlight. I honestly don’t care as long as his play speaks for itself. At this moment, he better be comparable to Andrew Luck to be demanding so much attention.

  107. fuzzynuts55 says: Jul 2, 2014 8:00 PM

    Remember what he said at john grudens camp? That’s not who iam.. He’s full of dung! What’s frkknn next?

  108. trapshoot says: Jul 2, 2014 8:22 PM

    Now there’s a real pair. Tweedle dumb and tweedle dumber..

  109. oldcracker says: Jul 2, 2014 10:08 PM

    I’m waiting for Johnny to go to North Korea with Dennis Rodman and party with Kim Jung Un!

    Notice how Bieber’s hair is looking more and more like Kim’s???

  110. seabiscuit3577 says: Jul 2, 2014 11:17 PM

    The browns are cursed!

  111. packergator says: Jul 3, 2014 10:11 AM

    This is going to end badly for Manziel. Personally I don’t see his game translating well into the NFL; he’ll have a much harder time making guys miss, and he doesn’t read the field and coverage well at all. I see him more as RGIII 2.0.

  112. politicallyincorrect says: Jul 3, 2014 10:46 AM

    Bieber is not exactly someone I would want near me… he/she is kind of icky

    bad move Johnny

  113. vietnambob2473 says: Jul 3, 2014 12:47 PM

    and this is what happens when you give immature kids millions of dollar to do with as they please. it is only a matter of time before allegations come out, true or not. given what we know about Manziel’s lifestyle, he will be guilty until proven innocent.

  114. dhardy8207 says: Jul 3, 2014 6:18 PM

    He is living it up off of the popularity he gained while playing college ball. NFL lots different and lets see how many A lister shindigs he gets invited to if his career is a flop…

  115. jayfish6402 says: Jul 4, 2014 10:40 PM

    Manziel’s future roughly:
    He does terrible in Cleveland and only starts his second year, but gets benched for throwing 9 picks in a game. Cleveland cuts him at the end of the season, and the Dolphins sign him as a backup. But Tannehill gets hurt and Manziel leads them 4-12. Then gets cut. Then Manziel realizes that he’s not Johnny Football, he’s Johnny McDonalds, and works minimum wage at McDonalds for about 12 years. So, 3 years in the NFL and a minimum wage job.

    The opportunity to commit a crime = legal risk?

    By that logic isn’t everyone a legal risk?

    Better stop driving cars, you might hit and kill someone.
