Former Cleveland quarterback Johnny Manziel has been accused of trashing posh L.A. pad, evidence of drug use. Reports said that Johnny Manziel and his friends have trashed a posh Los Angeles pad they were renting and the real estate broker who discovered the damage done said that there were clear signs of drug use.

Manziel, who comes from a Texas oil family and whose NFL future is in peril, rented a house in West Hollywood, California for two days last week with his friends. The Manziel’s group said to have thrown two all-night ragers that created huge noise and prompted neighbors to call the police.

The report said that Manziel and his group left the house strewn with booze and drugs, broken glass table and a bathroom door, cigarette burns on carpets. Pictures obtained by online publication Page Six shows line of suspicious white powder on a table, possible use of highly prohibited drugs, and an open bag.

Real estate broker Nicholas Goodwin has demanded $32,000 from Manziel for damages. The report said that the “lines of suspicious white powder” were found, along with a bag of what appeared to be a recreational drug.

Goodwin’s lawyer, Niki Ghazian, wrote Manziel’s reps: “Mr. Manziel threw large parties on both nights, causing extensive damage . . . Evidence suggests [Manziel] and his guests were consuming drugs and alcohol . . . and that they caused a disturbance to the neighborhood,” via the Page Six.

The move led to LAPD being called to the house on April 6. The real estate broker arrived at the house after two days to find it trashed and Manziel crashed on the sofa at 2 p.m., added some detailed information about possible use of drugs.

Manziel is an American football quarterback, who was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the 22nd overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft. He made his debut at Texas A&M Aggies, where he led the team to a 29-24 victory over the number Alabama in Tuscaloosa. Manziel made a huge performance in that game, where he accounted 345 of Texas’ 418 yards of offense including two passing touchdowns.

In addition, Manziel also broke numerous NCAA Division FBS and SEC records, including the first freshman and fifth player in NCAA history to pass for 3000 yards and rush for 1000 yards in a season. Manziel also became the first freshman to win the highly prestigious Heisman Trophy, Manning Award and the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award.

In 2014, he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the 22nd overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft. At Cleveland, Manziel has completed 18–of–35 passes for 176 yards and two interceptions, and one touchdown.
