CLEVELAND >> The Browns say they are aware of an “incident” reportedly involving rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel and a fight at a downtown hotel where he lives.

General manager Ray Farmer said in a statement Monday the team is “gathering additional information in order to gain a complete understanding of what occurred. Nonetheless, the time of the incident is concerning to us.”

Citing a police report, Cleveland Scene magazine said police were called to The 9 at 2:36 a.m. Friday to handle a “riot” involving 20 men and two security guards. According to the report, a man who approached Manziel was punched in the face.

Police did not immediately respond to calls and emails from the AP.

Farmer did not mention Manziel’s name, saying the team “addressed this appropriately with the player.”

Manziel traveled with the Browns for their Sunday game in Atlanta. Manziel’s late hours and social life became an issue during the offseason.
