Report: Jameis Winston cited for stealing crab legs

National Football Post

UPDATE: The Tallahassee Police Department posted a statement on twitter claiming there has been no recent contact with Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.

"In response to recent requests: TPD has NOT had any contact with Jameis Winston regarding an alleged recent citation," the police department wrote.

2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was caught red handed ... stealing crab legs.

Yes, the Florida State redshirt sophomore was recently issued a citation for swiping some crab legs at a local Publix grocery store, according to a report from SB Nation. Winston was not arrested but issued a citation for the alleged theft.

Winston enjoyed a great deal of public relations hype entering his redshirt freshman season with the Seminoles, and he didn't disappoint on the field. But allegations that he was linked to a sexual assualt put a stain on his Heisman campaign, though he was never charged with a crime. In the end, he was still voted college football's best player in 2013. 

A State Attorney in Florida decided not to pursue charges for the alleged sexual assault, though he noted the Tallahassee Police Department could have done a better job of investigating the incident when it actually occurred.

The SB Nation report states that this is an adult civil citation, which will never appear on Winston's record if he completes what's required from local law enforcement.
