Report: Florida State QB De'Andre Johnson Suspended Indefinitely

Freshman allegedly punched female student in the face.

Published June 26, 2015

After a controversy-filled few years with Jameis Winston, a different Florida State University quarterback is now in trouble.

Freshman QB De'Andre Johnson was suspended indefinitely by the team Thursday after being accused of punching a female FSU student at a Tallahassee bar on Wednesday night.

Sources speaking with ESPN say that Johnson was involved in an argument with the woman and when she raised her arms at him, that he grabbed them and punched her in the face.

The woman declined to comment about the situation. This news is still developing.

Also, Winston, the Seminoles' last QB and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie, just spoke about doing the right thing on and off the field.

"It's about my actions," Winston said during a rookie symposium in Cleveland on Friday, also reported by ESPN. "I got to be a quarterback. When I'm off the field, I got to be a quarterback; when I'm on the field, I got to be a quarterback. I know people are going to look at me in each and every way. I just smile, man."

Winston was hit with everything from a sexual assault case — which he wound up not being charged for — to cited for allegedly stealing crab legs from a supermarket during his playing days for Florida State University
