FSU's Jameis Winston Accused of Shoplifting Crab Legs

Posted: Updated:

Miami (CNN) -- Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston, who overcame a rape allegation and won the Heisman trophy, was cited for allegedly stealing crab legs from a grocery store, a source familiar with the investigation told CNN Wednesday.

Winston, a two-sport athlete, was suspended from FSU's baseball team on Wednesday.

The Leon County, Florida, Sheriff's Office is handling the case, the source said.

Winston, only the second freshman to win college football's most coveted award, allegedly walked into a Publix near the FSU campus Tuesday night, ordered some crab legs, and walked out of the store without paying, the source said.

CNN calls to the FSU Police Department and the university's athletic department were not immediately returned.

Winston was not arrested because he was not charged with a crime, the source said. The football star was issued a citation for alleged shoplifting.

In similar cases, most offenders would have to pay a fine, do community service and attend a class related to the incident, the source said.

It was not immediately known what penalties Winston faces.

"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 news release.

The school's football coach, Jimbo Fisher, said, "I fully support Coach Martin's decision and will also make sure that Jameis meets all obligations, which I know he will."

    Chrysler is recalling up to 792,300 older Jeep SUVs worldwide because the ignition switches could cause engine stalling. Tuesday's recall covers 2005-2007 Grand Cherokees and 2006-2007 Commanders. Chrysler says it's not sure exactly how many will be recalled. The company says an outside force such as a driver's knee can knock switches out of the "run" position, shutting off the engine. This disables power-assisted steering and braking and the front air bags might not inflate. En...More >>
