Texas A&M freshman QB arrested for alleged fighting, fake ID.

Johnny Manziel's mugshot.
It seems that Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell wasn't the only college football player to have a run-in with the law last night. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was arrested Friday morning by College Station, Tx. police on charges allegedly resulting from a fight.

"College Station police said an officer was on bicycle patrol in the Northgate entertainment district about 2 a.m. Friday when he noticed two men fighting. Police said a group of people were at the intersection of Church Avenue and First Street surrounding the men who were throwing punches.
Police said after they stopped the fight, officers asked Manziel for identification, and he handed them an ID that stated he was 21 years old.

He’s 19 years old.

Police said he did not look 21 years old, and when asked his age on several occasions, he kept confusing the year he was born. Police said a short time later officers found two other driver’s licenses, one fake and one real, in Manziel’s wallet."

You can figure what happened next. Manziel has been charged with misdemeanor "disorderly conduct by fighting," and " failure to identify and for having a fake driver’s license." Worse yet, his mugshot gets him extra redneck points for being taken shirtless. Never a good sign there. 

Manziel, a freshman,  was reportedly being "considered an option for the Aggies’ starting quarterback role" this season. It looks more like he's going to be spending time in Revelie's doghouse.
