Did Johnny Manziel flip the bird to camera crews in court? (Video)
Johnny Manziel made his first court appearance on Thursday for his domestic violence charge, and he may have given camera crews the middle finger while standing before a judge.
Jay Busbee of Yahoo Sports notes that “several observers” who were seated behind Manziel witnessed the free agent quarterback flip the bird with his right hand, which was tucked into his left hand behind his back. Was it intentional or just the way he happened to be holding his hands? You be the judge:

It certainly wasn’t blatant, and there’s no way to know for sure if Manziel was doing it on purpose. But would you really put it past him?
Manziel hasn’t seemed fazed from the moment he was charged with assaulting his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley. He was all smiles in his mugshot when he turned himself in on Wednesday and later cracked an ignorant joke about it on Twitter. Flipping the bird in court would be right in line with everything else.
