Florida State quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston was issued a citation Tuesday for shoplifting crab legs from a Publix supermarket, ESPN reports on their website.

"He got an adult civil citation," a source told the website. "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 misdemeanors for adults to lower crime rate."

Florida State announced Wednesday that Winston has been suspended from the baseball team as a result of the citation. A preseason All-American, he was 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA in 16 appearances this spring.
