Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston was involved in two minor incidents unrelated to an investigation into accusations that he sexually assaulted a woman. However, YouWager experts have learned he was not arrested or charged in either case.
In the first case, police questioned the 19 year-old and other members of the Seminoles in November 2012 after 13 windows were broken at an apartment complex near Doak Campbell Stadium after an apparent BB gun battle. In the second case, a Burger King employee called police in July to complain that Winston was stealing soda.
According to attorney Timothy Jansen, who is representing Winston in the sexual assault investigation, said he was unaware of the incidents.
The Alabama native is a leading Heisman Trophy candidate who has guided the unbeaten FSU to a No. 2 ranking.
Winston is under investigation after a woman accused him of sexually assaulting her a little more than a week after he was questioned about the BB gun incident.
Police did not hand over information about the alleged sexual assault to prosecutors until earlier in November. The interim police chief said the case was placed on inactive status after police were told the accuser no longer wanted to prosecute the case. In addition, an attorney representing the accuser has said her client never wanted to drop the charges.
In regards to the Burger King incident, Winston came in with three men but did not order food. The quarterback was recognized by an employee who first saw him using ketchup cups to take soda.
Winston then asked for a water cup after she told him to stop, but he said he would use it for soda and filled it repeatedly with soda over her objections.
A report of the case states Winston was never interviewed about the incident because the restaurant declined to prosecute.
State Attorney Willie Meggs added that he doubted the BB gun incident would have much bearing on the sexual assault investigation.
