Remember Johnny Football?

He was the supposed future of the NFL - a guy so beloved when playing college football at Texas A&M that he actually trademarked the name "Johnny Football".

The American football star, real name Johnny Manziel, is now more famous for his hard-partying ways than for his athletic abilities but the craziness has really ramped up in the last few days.

This afternoon, Manziel was pictured boarding a flight to Cabo - while still wearing a Cleveland Browns jersey despite the fact that Manziel was released by the Browns in March after they got sick of his antics - he was spotted in Las Vegas the night before the team's final regular game - a game he did not show up to. It's probably not the way they'd describe it in the States - but it's fair to say Manziel looked fairly shook.

Today's flight incident comes mere days after Manziel's father Paul gave a shocking interview to ESPN.

He's a druggie. It's not a secret that he's a druggie. Hopefully he doesn't die before he comes to his senses. I mean, I hate to say it, but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him. I'm doing my job, and I'm going to move on. If I have to bury him, I'll bury him.

Since the end of the NFL season in March - Manziel has been dumped by the agency that represented him, by his personal manager and by Nike.

Just last week Manziel was accused of being involved in a hit-and-run incident and he also faces a previous misdemeanor assault charge following an incident with his then-girlfriend who claims that Manziel forced her into a car, pulled her by the hair, and threatened to kill both her and himself.

To top things off, the lawyer representing Johnny Football mistakenly sent a text message to a reporter from the Associated Press saying that he doubted that Manziel could keep clean - 'heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle' - after he took a plea deal (ie, pleaded guilty).

The lawyer, who has since quit Manziel's legal team - also claimed he was in possession of a receipt that showed Manziel had spent $1,018.77 on "drug paraphanalia" the day after his supposed involvement in the hit-and-run incident.
