Johnny Manziel’s Father on His Son: “..He’s A Druggie, I Hope He Goes To Jail”


Strong words from a father who is scared for his son. There’s a bunch of things Paul Manziel should want for his son, Johnny, but hoping he goes to jail shouldn’t be one of them. It’s not a rehabilitation center and he would probably come out even worse than he is right now.

After Manziel’s lawyer accidentally sent incriminating texts to the associated press about Manziel’s drug habit, Paul Manziel spoke with ESPN’s Josina Anderson:

“Paul Manziel, the quarterback’s father, told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he wants his son to get well but that he has to do that for himself.
“He’s a druggie. It’s not a secret that he’s a druggie,” Paul Manziel said Friday. “I don’t know what to say other than my son is a druggie and he needs help. He just hasn’t seeked it yet. Hopefully he doesn’t die before he comes to his senses. That’s about all you can say. I don’t know what else to say.
“I hate to say it but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him. So we’ll see.”
