Johnny Manziel learned the hard way what happens when a suddenly famous college football player celebrates one of the more impressive individual performances in recent bowl game history by publicly guzzling Dom Perignon: People tsk-tsk and tell him to be a better role model.

He's now discovered what happens when said college football player is caught exceeding the speed limit while passing through Ennis: You get a ticket, and then have that fact broadcast on Facebook by the municipal judge overseeing your case.

That municipal judge would be Lee Johnson, a Baylor alum and 26-year veteran of the Ennis municipal bench. According to aggiesports.com, which has a screenshot, Johnson posted the following:

Too funny. So it seems that a certain unnamed (very) recent Heisman Trophy winner from a certain unnamed "college" down south of here got a gift from the Ennis P.D. while he was speeding on the 287 bypass yesterday. It appears that even though the OU defense couldn't stop him, the City of Ennis P.D. is a different story altogether. Time to grow up/slow down young 'un. You got your whole life/career ahead of you. Gig Em indeed.

Seven minutes later, apparently realizing that he is supposed to be the impartial arbiter of Manziel's fate, he adds a comment to clarify things: "I meant to say 'allegedly' speeding, my bad."

The story now has legs, as they say, having been picked up by CBS and others and prompting suggestions that maybe Johnson should sit this case out.

Since 1986, Baylor has beaten A&M twice and tied once (out of 26 games). Maybe giving Johnny a ticket helps him sleep at night but Baylor is still terrible.


enough. get your heisman ass back to college station where they understand you.


I think the thing that stands out most in this story is that he looks like he had his ass whipped by an ugly stick; luckily he's famous!


We have judges commenting on social media.........what a backwoods f+ck!  Here'a clue judgey; you and your Barney Fief get out and solve that wicked, creeping meth problem that is slowly enveloping the county.  Ellis County is rural blight.


Has anyone ever alleged this judge being a douchebag?

Consider the facts on the ground. He's been an attorney for at least 26 years and the best gig he can manage is being a Muni Judge in Ennis.  I bet you $50.00 he has one of those Singing Bass Mounts on the den wall of this mobile home.
