Frat to Johnny Manziel


to Booze Here

7/29/2013 8:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Johnny Manziel was asked to leave a University of Texas frat party this weekend because he tried to drink a beer ... and frat officials became worried he would be a liability because he's only 20 years old, TMZ has learned.

The Heisman Trophy winner has been at the center of a media firestorm ever since a video emerged showing the Texas A&M quarterback being escorted out of a UT frat party Saturday night ... while one guy screamed, "Get the f**k out!!"

But our frat sources tell us ... the decision to boot Manziel wasn't based on school rivalry -- it was about staying out of trouble with school officials.

One source tells us ... some of the brothers became concerned when they saw Johnny taking pictures at the party while holding a beer in his hand ... and worried that a media backlash would result in the school punishing the fraternity for underage drinking.

So, we're told, the fraternity brothers quickly made the decision to ask Johnny to leave the party ... and during his exit, one of the frat guys decided to act like a frat guy ... and started with the heckling.

As we previously reported, Manziel is legally ALLOWED to drink in the state of Texas ... as long as he's accompanied by a parent.

But we're told it didn't appear mom or dad was part of the entourage this time around.

Poor UT students. TAMU goes to the SEC and UT keeps their skirts keeping the truck stop 10 together. Should have gone to the PAC. TAMU going to run Texas now.

Just typical t.u. wannabes. TMZ are you seriously buying thank fear of underage drinking exposure crap, BS I can guarantee there were plenty there underage and drinking. It's one punk that threw a beer and running his mouth because that's all he has. Johnny and Nate left to avoid any ruckus, BECAUSE he's trying to keep a low profile. He has lots of friends that go there including former teammates from High School. There is a punk in every crowd. And there is bonafide proof it wasn't David Ash.

What?? Frat members showing responsible judgement at a frat party? *looking out the window to see if pigs are flying*. Its a good excuse to get rid of him no doubt, but something tells me he probably wasn't the only underage drinker there. Having the QB from their biggest and longest standing rivalry was probably making that beer taste pretty nasty..

Maybe the various restaurants/bars around the country could take note, and stop allowing Bieber to drink in their establishments.

I am a UT graduate and there is a frat party at every frat house every weekend with kegs of beer. These students are normally 18-22 years old and they ALL drink. So this idea of getting in trouble because someone is drinking underage is bogus.
