As if it's not quite unbelievable enough that Johnny Manziel thought to sneak off to Las Vegas on Saturday night, a day before his Cleveland Browns were playing their season finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers, there's a report with more details of the lengths Manziel went to in order to stay under the radar in Sin City.
Radio Station ESPN Las Vegas posted the following on its Facebook page on Monday night:
We all know Vegas stories can get extremely crazy involving celebrities. This is going to sound wild, and maybe hard to believe, but this is what we’re hearing regarding Johnny Manziel.
Our sources tell us Manziel was at a popular night club on the strip Saturday night. The QB entered wearing a blonde wig, a fake mustache, glasses, and a hoodie.
Manziel introduced himself as “Billy.” He was there into the 3am hour and when it came time to pay the bill, he asked to have it comped because he didn’t bring cash and also didn’t want to put it on his card.
However, the sources tell us he ended up paying with his card and signing the check.
By 3am he appeared to be enjoying the party scene that Vegas is known to offer.
The club had Manziel and his crew placed at a VIP table close to the DJ booth. The table is located in one of the darkest areas of the club.
Manziel dined at the club’s restaurant before going to the nightclub. He was seated at the most private area in the restaurant, which is still out in the open. And yes, he ate with his wig and glasses on.
Manziel had been downgraded to out in the days before Sunday's game due to a concussion suffered the week before against the Kansas City Chiefs. He reportedly was at the Browns' facility on Saturday morning, but he was not there on Sunday morning, as required. Reporters at the Browns' facility on Monday said Manziel was present but he was not spotted.
You really can't make this stuff up.
Although, maybe you can make a profit off it - this t-shirt quickly showed up on Twitter for purchase:
