Johnny Manziel throws water bottle at heckling fan, misses target: Report

Johnny Manziel continued where he left off last season after he tossed a water bottle at a heckler during an incident at the AT&T Byron Nelson golf tournament this weekend — and missed. 

The troubled Cleveland Browns quarterback's throw sailed by its intended target but police were summoned to the scene anyway. No charges were filed, reported

Manziel reportedly had been turning away autograph requests from the fan for about two hours Saturday during the third round when an exchange escalated in the pool area of the Four Seasons Resort where the PGA Tour event is held, Irving police spokesman James McLellan said.

The water bottled missed the 18-year-old man, and someone who was with Manziel pushed the fan, leading officers to intervene, McLellan said. The fan declined to press charges, and McLellan said no police report was filed.

After the skirmish, Manziel was photographed by several bystanders talking to the police outside the Four Seasons hotel, where the incident took place — a bucket of beer sitting nearby.

Police did not detect that Manziel had been drinking at the time of the incident.

Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M, was recently released from a 10-week stay in rehab and is going through offseason workouts with the Browns. 

A stint with anger management could be next.
