FSU’s Winston cited for shoplifting
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (NYTNS) — Florida State's Jameis Winston has been suspended from the baseball team after the Leon County Sheriff's Office issued him a shoplifting citation for leaving a market without paying for $32.72 worth of crawfish and crab legs.
The 2013 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for the national championship football team and baseball relief pitcher told deputies he realized he had not paid for the food when he got home Tuesday but he made no effort to do so, Maj. Mike Wood said at a news conference Wednesday.
Surveillance video confirmed that it was Winston, 20, who left the grocery store's premises, Wood said. Employees called deputies, who went to Winston's apartment about three hours later.
Winston was not arrested and received a citation designed for first-time offenders.
• IRVING, Texas (AP) — The college football playoff selection committee will release a weekly top 25, starting Oct. 28, and panel members will be required to recuse themselves when a school they work for comes up for discussion.
The selection committee will use the same voting procedure and recusal policy as the committee that chooses the 68-team field for NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
The 13-member panel, which includes five current athletic directors, will meet in person and the rankings will be released on Tuesday nights on ESPN.
