UPDATE: Jameis Winston releases statement through his attorney about the crab leg theft, via Tallahassee.com.

“As reported in the news, last night I received an adult civil citation for petit theft from a local supermarket. I went to the supermarket with the intent to purchase dinner but made a terrible mistake for which I’m taking full responsibility. In a moment of youthful ignorance, I walked out of the store without paying for one of my items.

I realize that I am in the public spotlight and my conduct needs to be above reproach. Over the last year I’ve learned that my accomplishments on the fields can be a wonderful thing for my school, teammates, friends, and family. At the same time, I must realize that my mistakes are magnified and can bring great embarrassment to all those who support me every day. I make no excuses for my actions and will learn and grow from this unfortunate situation. I hope and pray my friends and family will view me as the 20-year-old young man that I am, and support me through this unfortunate situation.

I am grateful to be able to participate in the adult citation program where I will complete community service.”

The Internet is blowing up about this one. I think the story has legs.

Heisman Trophy and National Championship winning Jameis Winston is a hell of an athlete. There’s no denying it. He’s also just a weird guy. From the over-the-top mannerisms, to the quirky on-field behavior, to the locker room theatrics, to speaking outright gibberish, he’s just fucking odd.

But the future multi-millionaire stealing crab legs from a grocery store may be the weirdest/dumbest thing he’s done yet.

From SB Nation:

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was issued a citation Tuesday for shoplifting crab legs from Publix, a misdemeanor arrest, according to multiple sources.

Gotta put the team ahead of yourself, Jameis. So shellfish.
