AUSTIN, Texas

Police say they are investigating an incident involving Johnny Manziel that led to a lawsuit from a man who claims Manziel punched him and broke his nose in a bar in Austin, Texas. The alleged incident happened in September at a bar in downtown Austin.

The plaintiff, Eric Newton, said Manziel was attending a private party when Newton turned down Manziel’s request to prepare some drinks. Newton said he was later discussing his opinion of Manziel with another customer and that somebody in Manziel’s group told the former Cleveland Browns quarterback about the conversation.
