Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was issued a citation for shoplifting crab legs from a Publix grocery store in Tallahassee, Fla.
“He was very cooperative and he seemed fairly honest in that he did not pay for the item,” Leon County Director of Law Enforcement Michael Wood said.
The Florida State quarterback was not arrested but was issued a civil citation. In a statement released through his attorney, Winston said, “I went to the supermarket with the intent to purchase dinner but made a terrible mistake for which I’m taking full responsibility. In a moment of youthful ignorance, I walked out of the store without paying for one of my items.”
As a result of the citation, FSU baseball coach Mike Martin said in a statement he has suspended Winston, a pitcher from the Seminoles’ baseball team. Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher said in the release, “I fully support Coach Martin’s decision and will also make sure that Jameis meets all obligations, which I know he will.”
Twitter had a lot of fun with Winston’s news.
