COLLEGE STATION (July 15, 2013)--Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor charge stemming from his arrest last year for fighting outside a bar near campus.
The Heisman Trophy winner made a brief appearance in court Monday and admitted he failed to identify himself to police following the fight in June 2012.
As part of a plea deal, other charges against the 20-year-old, including disorderly conduct, were dismissed.
Brazos County Attorney Rod Anderson says Manziel was ordered to pay a $2,000 fine, about $230 in court costs and was credited with the overnight jail time he served following his arrest.
His court appearance came after Manziel departed a day early from the prestigious Manning football camp held in Louisiana.
Manziel said an illness caused him to miss practice sessions.
