Video of Jameis Winston walking out with crab legs is online 

By Andy Johnston

If you want to check out Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston leaving Publix with those famous crab legs, here’s the store’s security video.

Winston is wearing a long-sleeve black T-shirt, black shorts and some sort of flip-flops or sandals while leaving the Publix on April 29. The crab legs are plainly visible in the video released by the Leon County Sheriff’s Office.

Winston makes an appearance about 5 seconds into the video.

Winston was not arrested when police arrived at his residence around midnight and has completed 20 hours of community service. He didn’t face criminal charges.

Winston threw for 4,057 yards and 40 TDs and 10 interceptions as a redshirt freshman, leading the Seminoles to the national championship.

the dude forgot to pay for those crabs---no big deal--they should be paying players anyway for all the millions they bring in so they can buy the food they want

After watching the recording if anyone thinks he just made a mistake they need to reevaluate their own values. Winston walked all over the store trying to not draw attention to the fact that he was there to steal the crab legs. This was so calculating that there is no way he hasn't done this many, many times before and just didn't get caught. 

My guess what happened with the Rape thing was you had two underage kids drinking and when they got down to if they were going to go to first , second, third base or home plate , the girl had no intentions of going all the way , passed out and woke up knowing Winston didn't stop at third base. The reason I think he should have gone on trial was because she was willing to show how dumb she was to get into that position in the first place when she went to the hospital to be examined. 

If Bobby Bowden was still in charge he would have been kicked off the team. I use to have a lot of respect for Florida State , but not now.

This whole ugly incident could have been avoided if he was in prison for RAPE.

and  Aaron Hernandez was a first class citizen while at Florida if you listen to Urban Meyer.  He never got in trouble.  Just another great student.

Winston went to the wrong school.  Henry gets a new car at Bama, but Jameis has to steal food.

If you look closely at the video, 2 things jump out at me.  1st, when he walked up to the seafood counter, it appears his friend or someone know he was coming and already had the crab legs ready for him.  2nd, when he walked out the door, he didn't try to hide the crablegs or put them in a bag, etc.  This leads me to believe that the guy in the back was in on the theft as well or maybe to the QB that he would pay for them..  That's probably why he was slapped on the wrist...

LMKLaw1...you are correct but the real issue is having the mind set to repeatedly live in the grey area of the law.  JW is just one small step from spending time in jail.  Have we not seen this type of behavior way to much of kids that have not had proper upbringing or refusing to change his flawed personality.

Shooting people with a bb gun, accused of rape, and caught shoplifting.  The police in Tallahassee wink at this behavior, but the NFL may not.

@Allenman....


Not charged or convicted of rape.  A person is innocent until proven guilty in America, least you forget.

I am tired of reading about Famous Jamis.  I hope he is as well, as he has a bright future if he is not just plain.....stupid.   Which he might be since he went to Free Seafood U to play football instead of to Texas.

Rapist.  Thief.  FSU football player (still).

Florida State knows how to build character.

Winston is a disgrace to the Heisman.

Why wasn't he arrested?   Because he's a "star" football player in Tallahassee who won the Heisman? Speaks well of the police dept. doesn't it?  Did they know it was him?  Of course they did !  The "average Joe" would have been arrested for shoplifting.

@TampGator1  

And I am tired of you posting about it, so shut your yap, why don't you?! You can't even spell his name, and you call HIM stupid? LOL.

So he would've won a NC at Texas? Duh. You're just bitter that he didn't attend your disgraceful university.

Anyone who's a fan of the school that embraced the slimebags Aaron Hernandez and Urban Meyer has ZERO room to take potshots at Winston. 

Can you spell HYPOCRITE? I doubt it.

That Publix Grocery store is known to be "friendly" to FSU FB players and a place where they can go and get  "the hook-up", i.e. free food/stuff.

When Winston got popped, he went ahead and took the fall and the bad publicity instead of ratting everyone else out and potentially getting FSU's FB Program in trouble with the NCAA for illegal benefits.

That's the REAL STORY that no one want to talk about, so they allow Winston's reputation to get hammered in the Media.

@YogiBare  Are you very familiar with Florida law? Do you know the procedures  or statutes governing shoplifting there? In case you were wondering, because though you seem certain, in your ignorance you are wrong. In Florida a petit theft by shoplifting of property valued under $100 is not subject to arrest but rather a civil infraction, much like a stop sign ticket. If you don't pay, or complete the community service, it can then be converted to a criminal case. In fact, the "average Joe," would be treated exactly the same way. Except insofar as he is Jameis Winston, his face, his story, and this video gets plastered all over creation and is out there for ignorant people to call him a thug or a worse.

@YogiBare Yeah, I don't get that one. The "I forgot" to pay story doesn't really fly here in my opinion.

Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed and is blog hunting again. 


As a reminder, this is a sports blog and we live in America.  That makes me entitled to post by thoughts and opinions on here unless they are racists or hateful.  And the above post was neither.  But I do try to have fun on here by poking fun, especially at Fee Seafood U..Maybe you should consider having more fun on here by considering not personally attacking people, unless your therapist has told you to use sports blogs for anger management issues.


And no person currently or previously associated with the University of Florida did or does endorse murder by anyone.  But you seem to be endorsing someone that has exhibited criminal behavior.  So, who exactly is the HYTROCRITE?  And I could care less to correctly spell Famous' name, which neither makes me smart nor stupid.  But my two degrees tend to indicate that I am not stupid enough to shoplift or be accused of a major crime, especially if I had won the Heisman and had a potential multi-million dollar pro career ahead of me.  And, no Aaron Hernandez was not smart enough to realize that.  Hopefully, Famous will not turn out like him.  But, while he is on campus, please continue to embrace him and his actions.  You have that right on here.

Let's not let the facts get in the way of a good story, shall we?

In Florida, the crime commonly called shoplifting is legally termed "retail theft." It is defined in Florida Statues as taking "merchandise, property, money, or negotiable documents; altering or removing a label, universal product code, or price tag; transferring merchandise from one container to another; or removing a shopping cart, with intent to deprive the merchant of possession, use, benefit, or full retail value." The punishment depends on the value of the items stolen and circumstances of the case, although it's not often that first-time offenders see substantial jail time.

If the value of the stolen item is less than $100, the defendant may face a second-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 60 days in jail. If the value is between $100 and $300, the charge is first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail. A second offense of first-degree misdemeanor retail theft would upgrade the charge to a third-degree felony.

@TampGator1 @DawgNole  

I thought you were tired of reading about Winston? Why are you back here? More of your BS.

I've NEVER endorsed what Winston has done, and I made that perfectly clear in my previous responses to your smug, derogatory comments about his situation. The guy's an idiot who's stupidly jeopardizing his future. So don't come with your lies about me "endorsing" him or his inexcusable behavior.

What I WILL do is respond to potshots by an arrogant, two-faced, condescending gator fan whose own school has had far more than its share of issues--both on and off the field. Yes, YOU are the hypocrite.

Two degrees? What a narcissist. That's obviously not enough. You clearly could some help with communications and humility.

What is really important is we're lowering the crime rate! And with all 800k people dropping out of the workforce we just about have that unemployment rate down as well. Hell ..thinks are looking pretty good wouldn't you say.
