"Burger King reported Winston was stealing soda in a ketchup cup."



Okay, someone help me out. This couldn't be the cup mentioned in the story. Could it?

What, he was stealing Mountain Dew a half ounce at a time?

Sheriff’s Office: Winston Issued Citation For Shoplifting $32 Worth Of Crab Legs

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) —  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.

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.

“I am confident he will complete his community service obligation and the situation will be resolved soon,” FSU baseball coach Mike Martin said in a statement to Baseball America.

Football coach Jimbo Fisher says he supports Martin’s decision.

The 20-year-old Winston was investigated last year when a fellow Florida State student reported that he raped her. But prosecutors said there wasn’t enough evidence to charge him. The Associated Press reports Winston was among a group of players questioned about their involvement in a BB gun battle and Tallahassee Burger King employees complained Winston was among players stealing soft drinks and making a mess in the store.

Winston’s reported citation comes as the NCAA approved to expand meal allowances for all athletes.

Division I schools are now allowed to provide unlimited meals and snacks to all athletes, including walk-ons.

The move came after Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier complained during the Final Four that he sometimes went to bed “starving” because he couldn’t afford food.

Schools were previously allowed to provide three meals per day or a stipend for those meals to scholarship athletes. The new rule now allows walk-ons to receive the same allowances and allows schools to provide more meals and snacks, too.

Winston is a relief pitcher for the Seminoles and recently earned his first win of the season.

Can't see Lovie picking a guy which these type of off the field issues. Guess we should remove him from our draft board. He probably showed us these tendency during a game with some hand gestures that we all thought was something else.

If, as the saying goes...you are what you eat... and Manziel didn't get a second Heismann...

It's good that he avoided the shrimp.

The true story....

11:20 a.m. update - We have confirmed with a couple sources that Jameis Winston was in fact NOT arrested. The prior reports that he was arrested are irresponsible and incorrect. However, he was in fact issued a civil citation for not paying for some seafood at a Publix.

I was advised from Winston's side that he simply walked out of the Publix forgetting to pay for it. Apparently he's used to going to another grocery story where they pay when they order the seafood and then it is prepared. Apparently, that's not the case at Publix so he ordered it, got other stuff that he did pay for and then when he picked up the seafood later he just walked out forgetting to pay for it. This happened at 10:30 p.m. last night.

For the civil citation he must pay Publix back for the seafood and complete 20 hours of community service. If that is done, there will be no criminal aspect to this incident and that will be the end of it. He will be suspended for baseball while he completes his community service.


Rumors that gator fans will be storming Tallahassee with pitchforks have not been confirmed yet!    ;)

He shoplifted.  He's a scumbag.  You must be proud.  Any Nole defending this piece of garbage isn't far from that themselves.  Seriously?  I can't believe anyone would downplay the string of run-in's he's had with the law.  And shame on Publix for not prosecuting him to the fullest extent of the law.

Extremely shallow definition of 'scumbag'...

He is a Saint compared to a real scumbug ....

Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Here's the facts. The 4 and 8ers were tripping over themselves to post this on twitter, fb, blogs, message boards.  Lovie won't take some white trash, pot smoking, glam boy and he's not taking Jameis.  In fact, the only way we would be in play for Jameis next year is if we took the white trash, pot smoking, glam boy.  Lovie wants character at the most visible position in all of sports.

yeah I don't think that makes you a scumbag.

scumbags use their dead girlfriend's credit cards or hit pregnant women

embarrassing is the word you are looking for, not scumbag
