LOS ANGELES (WCMH/AP)–It was not a great weekend for troubled quarterback Johnny Manziel.

On Saturday, hours after he grabbed a TMZ camera and falsely told people he was roommates with Von Miller, Manziel fled the scene of a hit-and-run accident.

TMZ reported Manziel was the passenger in Ryan Silverstein’s car Saturday night when Silverstein, also known as OVO Ryan, allegedly hit a light pole.

Police sources say the two fled on foot, and were picked up by suspended Browns receiver Josh Gordon.

NBC Sports reported that Manziel and Silverstein later returned to the scene, and Manziel was interviewed by police. He has not been accused of any criminal wrongdoing.

Manziel’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has told the troubled quarterback to seek help or he will no longer represent him.

Rosenhaus has asked Manziel to seek treatment within five days.

“I hope he gets the help he needs, and if he does, then I will continue to represent him,” Rosenhaus said Wednesday night.

Rosenhaus, whose clientele is among the largest in the NFL, has represented Manziel “for a few weeks now.” He says he’s never terminated a contract with a player; Rosenhaus has been an agent for 27 years.
