Johnny Manziel donned a blond wig and glasses during his visit to a Las Vegas night club Saturday, ESPN Las Vegas reports—and we may see video proof soon.

Manziel made the news when USA Today reported that  Manziel paid for dinner in cash and then sat down at the blackjack table, where a casino employee checking his ID said, "We've got Johnny Manziel with us tonight."

ESPN Las Vegas said that Manziel introduced himself as "Billy" and asked to have his bill comped because he didn't bring enough cash and did not want to use his credit card.

Later Manziel posted a photo to Instagram with his dog and added the location "Avon, Ohio."

When asked, the Browns said that they do not know whether Manziel was in Vegas Saturday night. It's unclear whether he missed a required training session before Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Cleveland TV and radio personality Will Burge Tweeted about a possible video of Manziel:

Burge appeared on WTAM Monday night and said that he has seen a screengrab of the video — a Snapchat — of Manziel in the wig, perhaps in a hotel room. He added that the person who has the video is negotiating with TMZ. 

#BillyManziel is trending on Twitter and ESPN Las Vegas' website crashed from the huge traffic after it posted the story.

If that video surfaces, we'll share it here.
