Texas A&M football quarterback Johnny Manziel early Monday pleaded guilty to failing to identify himself to police after a fight at Northgate, putting to rest a court case that followed him on his road to winning the Heisman Trophy.

The plea agreement called for Manziel to pay the maximum fine of $2,000, spend two days in jail and pay $232 in court costs. He won't have to spend any time behind bars, however, because the judge considered it time served since he was jailed following the June 2012 arrest by College Station police.

    I agree in principle with you. But, as far as I remember the story, it was not Manziel
    who uttered the racial slur, it was the guy who was with him.

    Too bad your pathetic rant isn't based on any sort of "facts", they really don't matter to you, just raw emotion. Zimmerman's case was based on facts and lack of evidence hence why they had to bring in a "special prosecutor" because the original prosecutor knew he didn't have a case but all you can do is see race. But I know i'm talking to the wall with you, keep believing what you want.

    The Manning have brought disgrace to themselves once again. Johnny has a Heisman to back up his reputation. Archie has one of the worst records in Pro Football history, Peyton can't when the big one unless he is playing against Rex Grossman and Eli is just a cog in the NY Giant machine.

    Now let Johnny play ball. If he wants to have a drink, go fetch it for him Archie!

    How much does it take to pay off a judge in Bryan/CS? Aggie season tickets, signed autographs?? He got away like Zimmerman! Its ashamed how our system works for Aggie student's and athletes VS. a hard working citizen in Bryan/CS.... They would have gotten a big fine, probation, forced to do jail time and community service. Manziel started the fight, used the "N" Word, got his butt kicked and got one of his dumb friends to take the blame. When are you Aggies going to realize that Money can keep you out of trouble for so long.... What about the accused rape charges back home?????????

    Wow! I see a very hard fall from grace in this kids near future.
    A family with money, the world in his hands and he still wants to act like a wannabe street punk. What a freaking waste.

    The wheels of justice turn slow, this should have been resolved last year. The 47 year old black man did not file assault charges. He could have!

    This is why this is a story, because the antics of JF continue:

    "The plea agreement was scheduled for 1:30 p.m. today. It wasn't immediately clear why it was moved to before 9 a.m."

    I'm guessing it was to avoid turning the court room into a circus with media from around the country trying to find a sports story when there's nothing to report.

    If it was anyone else, the media would ignore this story but since Johnny Football is now somewhat famous, we need to incite people also because this involved someone of a different race. Lets selectively pick and choose which stories to report.
