Johnny Manziel was a passenger in a car that allegedly hit a light pole and fled the scene in Hollywood this weekend … and the person who picked him up after the crash was Josh Gordon.
TMZ Sports has learned … Manziel was interviewed by LAPD about a crash that occurred on the Sunset Strip around 10:45 PM on Saturday night.
We’re told … cops believe the driver of the car was Manziel’s good friend Ryan Silverstein — aka OVO Ryan from Drake’s OVO crew.
Law enforcement sources tell us … cops believe Silverstein and Manziel left the scene on foot after the crash — and were picked up by Cleveland Browns WR Gordon.
After cops arrived to the crash scene, we’re told Silverstein and Manziel came BACK to the area … and witnesses identified Ryan as the driver because of his recognizable beard.
Our sources tell us Manziel admitted to being a passenger in the car at the time of the crash — but he’s NOT accused of any criminal wrongdoing. Neither is Gordon for that matter.
As for OVO Ryan, we’re told cops are still investigating him for a possible misdemeanor hit-and-run.
Attempts to contact Ryan and Manziel were unsuccessful.
BTW, earlier that night, we spotted Manziel and OVO Ryan outside of The Nice Guy … where Johnny told us he’s living with Von Miller and not doing anything stupid.
