According to Tomahawk Nation, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was recently cited for attempting to steal crab legs from a Publix grocery store.
Here's Tomahawk Nation:
"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."
Although Tomahawk Nation cites a source within the Tallahassee police department, the citation was not given by Tallahassee PD (a spokesperson within the department vehemently denied that any recent contact had been made with Winston), but by the Leon County sheriff's office. It appears that the sheriff's office plans to hold a press conference to shed some light on the situation, for some reason:

That seems... excessive? This may be the first time in history that a shoplifting citation has sparked a news conference. Good job, everyone.
