As any traveling Texan should know you never speed through Ennis. With all the time in the spotlight, big-time Aggie quarterback, Johnny Manziel, must’ve forgotten the lone star rules of the road, because he got busted. Which sucks for the guy but it happens to the best of us.
On the flip side, if you live in a city like Ennis we’re willing to bet you don’t get too many visits with celebrities rollin’ through town. So, after Manziel got his speeding ticket, local Judge W. Lee Johnson made a post on Facebook about Johnny-boy’s lead foot.
The post said: “Too funny. So it seems that a certain unnamed (very) recent Heisman Trophy winner from a certain unnamed “college” down south of here got a gift from the Ennis P.D. while he was speeding on the 287…”
He went on to say in his post, “…even though the OU defense couldn’t stop him, the City of Ennis P.D. is a very different story altogether.”
Hilarious! A judge with a sense of humor who can still enjoy a little sport-trash talk.
However, all the Serious Sallies out there are revved up about Judge Johnson’s post complaining that “tickets are no laughing matter” and calling the comments “insensitive and inappropriate.”
The judge even went on to give Johnny some advice in his post telling him to “grow up and slow down” because he’s got his whole life and career ahead of him.
Sadly, the judge might not as the City Manager’s saying Johnson could face disciplinary action.
Moral of the story: it’s not that big a deal. Everyone just needs to pump their brakes.
