Clevescene - An eager Cleveland Browns fan sparked a massive fight at The 9 when he approached Johnny Manziel and his “entourage” late Friday night, according to a police report obtained today by Scene. Cleveland police were called to the apartment’s lobby at 2:36 a.m. for a report of a “riot” involving 20 men and two security guards. The alleged victim, 33-year-old Sandusky resident Chris Gonos, reported to police that he and his girlfriend spotted Manziel while waiting for an elevator at the high-end apartment complex, where many Cleveland professional athletes live, and professed his love to the rookie quarterback. Gonos told police he pointed Manziel out to his girlfriend: “That’s Johnny Manziel.” Then he approached him. According to the report, “at this time victim stated to the unidentified male, ‘I’m the biggest Browns fan ever, I love you, I want to give you a hug.'” Gonos stepped towards Manziel and was promptly punched in the face, the alleged victim’s account to police says, followed by a beat down by Manziel’s crew, giving the man a “swollen lip, right eye swollen, red face.” A security guard intervened and also was hurt.
Phew! Thank God I read this article first. Ok mental note to self. When I do meet Johnny Manziel don’t say “I love you, I want to give you a hug” Johnny doesn’t like that. That’s how you get your nose broke. Just stick with the original plan and bark at him from the corner till you make eye contact. Ruff, Ruff…I love you Johnny….Ruff, Ruff.
PS – There is no chance this guy wasn’t belligerently drunk and deserved to get punched in the face by the way.
