Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was reportedly involved in a massive brawl this past weekend in Cleveland.

The first-round pick and about 20 others began fighting after an eager fan approached Manziel in the lobby of his condo building, according to CleveScene.

Chris Gonos, 33, was accosted by Manziel's entourage after seeing him while waiting for an elevator in the luxury building.

"That's Johnny Manziel," Gonos told police he shouted to his girlfriend, according to an arrest report obtained by the site.

"At this time victim stated to the unidentified male, 'I'm the biggest Browns fan ever, I love you, I want to give you a hug,'" the report said.

Gonos was instead punched in the face and then beat down by the quarterback's posse. The beating left him with a swollen lip and right eye and a red face.

A security guard working in the building was also hurt, police said.

The building's management declined comment on the matter.

A Browns spokesperson did not immediately return requests for comment.
