Did Jameis Winston just get himself into trouble again?
Back in December, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner managed to duck a sexual assault charge down in Florida. But according to the site Tomahawk Nation, Winston was issued a citation yesterday for a much less serious crime after he allegedly—get this—shoplifted some crag legs from a Publix grocery store. Winston was reportedly not arrested for the alleged crime. But multiple sources told Tomahawk Nation that he was given a ticket as a result of the incident.
Neither Winston nor Florida State has responded to the Tomahawk Nation report just yet. But as you would probably imagine, Twitter is already having a field day with the latest news about Winston. Here are a few of the tweets we've seen on our timeline this morning:

Twitter, you have no chill. Stay tuned for additional details on this story.
According to Tomahawk Nation, Winston has received a $30 fine for getting the citation and will be required to do community service. He will also be suspended from the Florida State baseball team. The Leon County Sheriff's Office is reportedly going to hold a press conference in Tallahassee, Fla. this afternoon to address the situation.
Winston has officially been suspended by the FSU baseball team.
"As a result of his citation last night, we are suspending Jameis Winston from the baseball team," Seminoles coach Mike Martinus said a short time ago. "I am confident he will complete his community service obligation and the situation will be resolved soon."
