Johnny Manziel's Father has Harsh Words for his Son

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Johnny Manziel's attorney for his domestic violence case has doubts about the quarterback's ability to stay clean. 

This week, Manziel's attorney accidentally sent a lengthy text message to The Associated Press saying he was given a receipt that shows the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback may have spent more than $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia store.

"Heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle," the attorney wrote.

On Friday, Manziel's father Paul spoke out also. He told ESPN.com his son has refused repeated efforts to help him.

"I don't know what to say other than my son is a druggie and he needs help," he told the website. "If I have to bury him, I'll bury him. That's the fact. So if not, if he calls me and needs help, I'll go get him. Until then, he's on his own. I've done everything I can do."

Manziel's father also said, "I hate to say it but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him. So we’ll see."
