Gonos told police he pointed Manziel out to his girlfriend: "That's Johnny Manziel." Then he approached him. According to the report, "at this time victim stated to the unidentified male, 'I'm the biggest Browns fan ever, I love you, I want to give you a hug.'" Gonos stepped towards Manziel and was promptly punched in the face, the alleged victim's account to police says, followed by a beat down by Manziel's crew, giving the man a "swollen lip, right eye swollen, red face."

Sun Nov 23, 2014 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports with a 10-game suspension behind him, Cleveland Browns WR Josh Gordon officially doesn’t have to worry about another suspension in the wake of his DUI guilty plea. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, Gordon was fined by the NFL and not suspended after pleading guilty to DUI charges in North Carolina. Gordon pleaded guilty to the DUI charge in September, in order to avoid the automatic two-game suspension contemplated by the revised substance-abuse policy. Under the prior substance-abuse policy, a suspension for a first-offense DUI was possible for players who had been disciplined under the policy. Gordon had been disciplined under the policy multiple times, culminating in a full-season suspension that the new policy reduced to 10 games. While Gordon remains subject to further action if he tests positive for alcohol, marijuana, or other street drugs, there will be no suspension arising from his DUI guilty plea.
