Johnny Manziel is accused of trashing the Los Angeles home that he and a buddy had rented for two days as a vacation property, but instead it was a non-stop party house. The Manziel party was so wild that even neighbor comedian Kathy Griffin called the police, along with others in the neighborhood.
According to Fox News on April 15, Manziel was found crashed on the couch at 2 p.m. by the real estate broker who rented him the house. Check out time was a 12 noon, but Manziel was spread out on the couch sleeping and the house was trashed.
Manziel and a buddy actually rented the house together, but because Manziel has the recognized name, he is the one making the headlines today. Manziel, who hails from a Texas oil family grew up a bit of a spoiled rich kid.
The former Cleveland Browns quarterback’s NFL future is already in peril and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, is dropping him because he is hoping Manziel will go get the help he needs. The house has $32,000 in damage done to it and the real estate broker, Nicholas Goodwin, of LA Exotic Life, which rents upscale vacation homes in the area, said Manziel and his friends trashed the house.
According to MSN News, the house was reportedly strewn with booze and drugs and someone broke an expensive glass table. A bathroom door was also broken and they left wine stains and cigarette burns on carpets.
“Despite Mr. Manziel’s assurances to my client that the rental was to be used strictly for his own personal and private use, surveillance footage shows that Mr. Manziel threw large parties on both nights, causing extensive damage to the subject property,” attorney Niki Ghazian wrote in the letter for his client Goodwin.
Ghazian made a list of the damage along with the cost to fix or replace each one on the list, which was allegedly caused by Manziel and his guests. The list was published to MSN:
“1.Extensive burn marks from cigarettes and marijuana, which were found on the living room floor; $8,000 replacement fee
2. Large wine stains that cannot be removed, in the upstairs master bedroom; $8,500 replacement fee
3. Broken Glass Table; $2,400 replacement fee.
4. Broken Bathroom Door; $650.
5. Broken Glasses; $30.”
The amount of money requested also included payment for an agreement that was broken. Manziel agreed to pay an additional $5,000 per night, which would be charged if there were more than 15 guests in the house.
According to MSN, “Ghazian asked Manziel to pay $5,000 per night ($10,000 total) and $2,000 in attorney’s fees as part of the total amount sought.” Surveillance video showed the wild parties on both nights and there was apparently more than 15 people there.
The video above is from a crash that Manziel was in on Saturday night. TMZ reports that he was a passenger in this car and it is believed Ryan Silverstein was the driver. Silverstein is currently being investigated for hit-and-run and Manziel has not been accused of any wrongdoing.
