Johnny Manziel, now an Ohio State fan, is in more trouble, according to a new lawsuit dug up by the Dallas Morning News. Allegedly, Johnny broke a bar back’s nose at an Austin bar after one thing led to another and Johnny was hearing that the bar back, Eric Newton, said something about him and then it, allegedly, was on.
Newton was working Sept. 6 at the New York New York bar on East Sixth Street on a night that Manziel was attending a private party, the suit alleges. It says Manziel “demanded” Newton, who works as a bar-back, make several drinks. Bar-backs assist bartenders but generally don’t make drinks.
The bar back wants damages between $200,000 and $1 million. Sounds like a money grab to me.
