Early Wednesday morning there were some rather odd reports coming out of the state of Florida that Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston had been arrested for stealing crabs from a local Publix. Originally the reports were thought to just be something stirred up on a Florida Gators message board, but now James Cameron from ESPN Tallahassee in confirming that, while not arrested, Winston was cited by police for the act in question.
Written citation, seafood last night- yep, it happened.

Not much more is known at this moment, other than this fact that he was cited by the police.
While this is nowhere near the sexual assault allegations that Winston faced during the year last season, it’s still another mark on his record that he really didn’t need.
Winston is getting set this season to lead Florida State hopefully toward another national championship after getting the ‘Noles the crystal ball last year and an undefeated record to go along with it.
This might be one of the oddest stories of the week, but it just happens to involve the most high-profile college football player on the planet.
