Johnny Manziel and LeBron James have been noted friends through the years, which made the news this week that James' marketing team had parted ways with Manziel a little curious.

In a copy of the docket obtained by Channel 3, Manziel was ticketed for having expired plates or sticker on his vehicle in the Cleveland suburb of North Olmsted at 8:28 a.m. Saturday morning.

Talk less of professionally, hopefully Manziel lands on his feet as a man before even thinking about stepping on a football field.

Reports continue to speculate whether or not Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was in Las Vegas last Saturday night.

This comes after another controversial season for the sophomore signal-caller, and on the heels of this past weekend, when he allegedly visited Las Vegas wearing a blonde wig and fake mustache with a fake name.

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James and his marketing agency LRMR have severed ties with disgruntled Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel. Manziel easily could have received his concussion treatment and then hopped on a plane for Las Vegas in time to reportedly be spotted later that night. Manziel was back at the team's facility Monday for exit meetings.

"I think it's more concerned for him individually", James told reporters when asked if Manziel's end to the season anxious him more from a branding perspective - Manziel is a client of LRMR, James' marketing firm - or from the human side of things.

According to ESPN, James said he wasn't sure about all of the details of the situation. And he'll figure it out at some point.

Manziel signed with the agency in January 2014 when the former Heisman Trophy victor was leaving Texas A&M; University and before the Browns drafted him 22nd overall in the spring. Manziel spent 73 days in inpatient addiction-rehab center in the offseason.
