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, our sources 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.
