Florida State's Jameis Winston Cited For Shoplifting

Florida State's Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was issued a civil citation after sheriff's deputies say he walked out of a supermarket without paying for $32 worth of crab legs and crawfish.

Leon County Sheriff's Maj. Michael Wood says that the 20-year-old Winston ordered the food at the deli in a Tallahassee-area Publix on Tuesday night. After receiving the order, he left the store without paying.

Wood said Publix employees called deputies, who went to Winston's apartment. Wood said Winston acknowledged not paying for the food, saying he forgot.

Winston will be required to complete at least 20 hours of community service. If he does that, no criminal charges will be filed.
