In the bizarre news story of the day, Heisman winner Jameis Winston reportedly stole $32 worth of crab legs from a Tallahassee Publix.

In 2013 the Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston became the youngest player ever to win the Heisman Trophy, running away with the vote to take the prestigious award.

CBS news reports that Winston has been suspended from the university’s baseball team after being issued a citation for stealing crab legs.

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office told the media that the footballer was caught shoplifting at a Tallahassee Publix Monday night and was issued a citation.

Major Michael Wood said during a press conference that Winston told authorities that he just forgot to pay the $32 for the crab legs and other seafood items.

“Jameis Winston has not been arrested for any crime. He was issued a civil citation,” Wood said.

Winston must complete the pre-diversion program or he will be facing a petty theft charge. He also must complete 20 hours of community service.
