Florida State’s Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston has been suspended from the university’s baseball team after being issued a citation for stealing crab legs.
The Leon County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that Winston was caught shoplifting at a Tallahassee Publix Monday night and was issued a citation.He should be required to learn the value of that which he would steal, and the lengths people go to to get it to him.
Major Michael Wood said during a press conference that Winston told authorities that he just forgot to pay the $32 for the crab legs and other seafood items.
“Jameis Winston has not been arrested for any crime. He was issued a civil citation,” Wood said.
Wood added that Winston was very cooperative with authorities. Winston must complete the pre-diversion program or he will be facing a petty theft charge. He also must complete 20 hours of community service.
