Remember Johnny Manziel’s tweet from the weekend that he couldn’t wait to leave College Station? Maybe it wasn’t as big of a deal as we thought.
Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio Express News reports that Johnny Football was angry over receiving a parking ticket while he was out of town when he sent the tweet.
Here’s what Zwerneman reported:
Manziel, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner, had been fishing in Port Aransas on Saturday and was still on the coast when he talked over the phone to an officer, who wrote him a ticket for being parked the wrong way in front of his house and for his windows being tinted too dark (his vehicle was in College Station while he was with friends in Port Aransas), according to the insider. Manziel tweeted out his frustrations in dealing with the matter, quickly removed the post, followed with a tweet that he loved A&M but for people to please walk in a day in his shoes.
Does that all make sense to you? I’m not sure what walking a day in his shoes has to do with receiving a parking ticket. I mean anyone with a vehicle can cross the wrong side of the parking gods and receive a ticket. You don’t have to be a Heisman Trophy winner to have something like that happen.
