BRYAN, Texas -- Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel pleaded guilty Monday to a Class B misdemeanor charge of failure to identify stemming from a 2012 incident in College Station’s Northgate District, according to a report by KBTX.

Manziel, 20, was sentenced to two days in jail, plus a $2,000 fine and will have to pay court costs, according to Brazos County Attorney Rod Anderson, who said he will likely not serve any jail time because of time already served.

The Heisman Trophy winner had also been charged with disorderly conduct by fighting, a Class C misdemeanor, but as a result of the plea on the failure to identify charge, the disorderly conduct charge was barred from future prosecution. There was also a dismissal of the possession of a fictitious driver’s license charge.

Manziel was arrested June 29, 2012 following a fight in Northgate.

After authorities separated the people involved, Manziel, 19 at the time, provided a fake ID that showed he was 21.

Manziel was confined for three hours at the Brazos County Jail before his release on bond.
