Hinton took it a step further expressing doubts that his client could stay clean if that was part of the deal. Revealing that Manziel had recently made a significant purchase at a drug paraphernalia store, via AP:
An attorney handling Johnny Manziel's domestic violence case expressed doubts about the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback's ability to stay clean and said he was given a receipt that shows Manziel may have spent more than $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia store just 15 hours after he was involved in a hit-and-run crash, according to a lengthy text message accidentally sent to The Associated Press.
Defense attorney Bob Hinton's text indicated Manziel's legal team was seeking a plea deal with prosecutors, but suggested that could be tricky.
"Heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle," the attorney wrote.
I like my argument that the lawyer might have been drunk as well. But it could just be simply that he wants to be fired.
Why else text all of this information? You know the reporter is going to release the info.
