Johnny Manziel's dad: 'My son is a druggie and he needs help'

Johnny Manziel's father, who predicted earlier this year that his son wouldn't live to see his 24th birthday if he didn't get help, says the troubled quarterback is "a druggie" and that he's done talking about him.

"If I have to bury him, I'll bury him. That's the fact," Paul Manziel told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Friday in a phone interview. "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. There is nothing [else] I can do as a father. Nothing. ... It is, what it is. He's a druggie and everybody needs to accept it."

Paul Manziel said "the system failed" in the family's attempt to keep Johnny in rehab and that they've exhausted all their options.

"He has more money than me, so he can outrun me," Paul Manziel said.

"I mean, I hate to say it, but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him."

Earlier Friday, a lawyer for Johnny Manziel expressed doubts that he can stay clean.

Defense attorney Bob Hinton, who's handling Manziel's domestic violence case, revealed that 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 last week.
