NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio-- The North Olmsted Police Department released video on Thursday of Cleveland Browns' Johnny Manziel being pulled over.

The second-year quarterback was cited for expired plates at 8:28 a.m. on Saturday, records from the North Olmsted Mayor's Court show. He was pulled over on Interstate 480 at Barton Road.

ESPN Las Vegas reported Manziel was in Sin City later that day, introducing himself as "Billy." He was reportedly out at Las Vegas clubs while wearing a blonde wig, fake mustache and glasses.

North Olmsted police say they give hundreds of these type of tickets a year, and that it’s a minor misdemeanor.

Manziel can either pay the $125 fine or appear in North Olmsted’s Mayor’s Court to fight the charge.

Even though the ticket is a very minor traffic charge, many fans say they have simply had enough of Manziel’s off-the-field problems.

“I think he is a clown,” said Brandon Webster of Cleveland. “His head is in the wrong place. He stopped caring.”

And Linda Kent agrees. “I really think he needs to get himself together, we are investing too much money in season tickets to lose,” Kent said.

Many fans said they had great hopes for the Heisman Trophy winner. “He had a great opportunity here in Cleveland to do great things,” said Maria Meredith. “But this last incident with the traffic violation, I am concerned he is not focusing on what he needs to do and that’s football.”

Manziel had another run-in with Northeast Ohio law enforcement on Oct. 12 in Avon. According to the police report, his girlfriend threw his wallet out the window while the two were arguing in the car. He told police she tried to get out of the car and he pulled her back in, and that's why she had a cut on her arm.

No charges were filed and the NFL did not take disciplinary action for that incident.
