Jameis Winston cited for shoplifting crab legs at Publix
SB Nation ^ | Apr 30 2014, 10:24a | Bud Elliott

Posted on 04/30/2014 9:49:34 AM PDT by Hoodat

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was issued a citation Tuesday for shoplifting crab legs from Publix, according to multiple sources. Winston, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, is a red-shirt sophomore for the Seminoles.

"He got an adult civil citation," a trusted source inside Tallahassee Police told Tomahawk Nation. "If he completes the sanctions it will never show up on his record. They commonly give them to juveniles on first criminal offenses. They are now doing it for minor misdemeanors for adults to lower crime rate."

Winston tossed the winning touchdown in the National Championship game over Auburn in the closing seconds. On the year, he was 257-384 for 4087 yards and 40 touchdowns with 10 interceptions.

Winston has had previous run-ins with the law, but no arrests. He was investigated for an alleged rape, but the State Attorney declined to bring charges due to a lack of evidence. In November, the associated press reported that Winston was questioned about his involvement in a long-running BB gun battle, and that a Burger King reported Winston was stealing soda in a ketchup cup.

The timing of the citation is interesting given that the NCAA recently approved unlimited meals for student athletes.

Winston was recently voted the quarterback on the Florida State All-Jimbo Fisher team.

11:30 Update: A source inside Florida State's program says that Winston will be fined $30, required to do community service, and will be suspended from the baseball team.

They are now doing it for minor misdemeanors for adults to lower crime rate."

To make the crime rate appear to be less than reality. They are not actually lowering the rate of crime, just hiding it.

I want so much to ask a question about the crabs, but I will restrain myself. It does sound, however, that he is ready for the NFL. Many of them have records too right?

I am sure if the college football players had a union, they would receive enough money to not have to steal food in order to keep from going hungry. (/s)

'Correction: The original story said that Winston was arrested, but a source with Tallahassee Police says that it is being classified as a citation, and not an arrest.'

Must be nice to be in a different legal system.

Okay, so they can make the citation for the theft go away, but they ought to fine him $10000 and 1000 hrs of community service for being stupid.

Some habitual criminals get a thrilling rush from stealing and getting away with it. A small percentage of those habitual thieves will almost allow themselves to be caught. Almost. I’ve heard of wealthy people stealing for the excitement, but I thought quarterbacks were supposed to be smart, unless of course, this is an exercise in affirmative action. Michelle O say those big pink legs and got jealous. Now, she’s back to obsessing over lobster dipped in melted butter.

And that's how you lower the crime rate -- no longer define crime as crime. Welcome to America 2014.
