Update: CBS Sports is reporting that Manziel plead guilty to one count of failure to identify in a Brazos County Courtroom on Monday.

The Heisman winning quarterback was ordered to pay “the maximum fine of $2,000, spend two days in jail, and pay $232 in court costs.”   The  jail time was waived because of time Manziel already served on the night of the June 2012 incident.

Houston (CBS Houston)- Johnny Manziel is back in the news again for all the wrong reasons. The Heisman winning quarterback left the Manning Passing Academy earlier than expected with an undisclosed illness.

Yardbarker is reporting that Manziel was sent home by Archie Manning for missing multiple meetings after a night of hard partying.

Camp organizers released a statement Sunday that read in part:

“After missing and being late for practice assignments, Johnny explained that he had been feeling ill. Consequently, we agreed that it was in everyone’s best interest for him to go home a day early.”

The Manning passing academy is organized by Peyton, Eli, and Archie Manning. Each summer many of the nations top collegiate quarterbacks are invited to Thibodaux, LA to help teach hundreds of young football players.
