Infamous quarterback Johnny Manziel’s rental property destruction case is headed back to court.

Manziel’s attorney’s will be in court Monday to argue on behalf of the former Cleveland Browns quarterback, according to USA Today.

USA Today reported in part:

The owner of a rental house is suing Manziel because he and his friends “were consuming drugs and alcohol” and caused thousands of dollars in damage to a Los Angeles home he rented for two nights in April.

Damages Manziel is accused of causing or being responsible for include: extensive burn marks from cigarettes and marijuana, found on the living room floor, $8,000 replacement fee; large wine stains that cannot be removed in the upstairs master bedroom, $8,500 replacement fee; broken glass table, $2,400 replacement fee; broken bathroom door, $650; broken glasses, $30.

The USA today report also indicates that Manziel is not in the country, which might be the most interesting aspect of the whole story. If he’s not currently in America then it means he’s probably in Canada, and possibly only days away from signing a CFL contract.

Our boy Johnny Football is on the verge of returning to professional football, but still can’t seem to shake some legal issues. Hopefully he gets this figured out quickly, and gets back to throwing touchdown strikes instead of allegedly destroying houses.
