Johnny Manziel's A&M replacement arrested for public intoxication

Kenny Hill is in line to replace Johnny Manziel as the starting quarterback at Texas A&M this coming season.

But his bid hasn't got off to the best of starts with reports claiming Hill was arrested for public intoxication early Friday morning.

The Sophomore QB was taken into police custody around 3 a.m. when he was found passed out outside of a local restaurant in College Station.

If police hadn't been aware of his state, they may well have been alerted to his intoxication when, having asked Hill who the current president of the United States was, he replied with "Bush."

Hill has since been released after posting bail, but can expect a fine in relation to the Class C misdemeanour.

It remains to be seen whether Texas A&M consider any further action against the Southlake native, with the school yet to comment on the player's arrest.

Hill made five appearances for the Aggies on the gridiron last season, completing 73 percent of his passed for a total of 183 yards and a single touchdown and is expected to be considered for the starting position by coach Kevin Sumlin for the 2014 season.
