Jameis Winston has reportedly been cited for stealing crab legs from a Publix store.

According to a story on SBNation, the Florida State Seminoles was caught taking the seafood from the store and given a citation, he was not arrested as previously reported.

This isn't the first time that the Heisman winning quarterback has been in trouble. 

He was investigated for an alleged rape last year, but the Tallahassee State Attorney declined to bring charges against him due to a lack of evidence. A report has come out criticising the police and their lack of application in investigating to try and let the university's star player off.

In November, the Associated Press reported that Winston was questioned about his involvement in a long-running BB gun battle, as well as a Burger King outlet that reported Winston was stealing soda.

From the SBNation article:

"He got an adult civil citation," a trusted source inside Tallahassee Police told Tomahawk Nation. "If he completes the sanctions it will never show up on his record. They commonly give them to juveniles on first criminal offenses. They are now doing it for minor misdemeanours for adults to lower crime rate"

After everything that has happened already with Winston, it would make sense for him to keep his head down and stay out of trouble.

But the repeat stories and accusations are starting to turn heads and really damage his reputation. And you can bet that NFL teams are hearing everything.
