Report: FSU QB suspended for allegedly punching woman in bar
Florida State freshman quarterback De’Andre Johnson has been suspended indefinitely from the team.
Coach Jimbo Fisher announced Johnson’s suspension Thursday for a violation of athletic department policy. The school released no details on what led to the suspension.
Other media outlets are reporting an altercation involving Johnson on Wednesday night at a Tallahassee bar.
According to ESPN, Johnson is accused of punching a female FSU student.
Johnson got into an argument with the woman after she cut in front of him when they were waiting to order drinks, according to unnamed sources cited in the report. Witnesses reportedly told police the woman raised her arms, and Johnson grabbed them before punching her in the face.
Johnson has not been charged with a crime and police, according ESPN, did not interview him Wednesday night because he had left the bar.
A call placed to the Tallahassee Police Department by The Associated Press wasn’t immediately returned.
Johnson led Jacksonville’s First Coast High School to a 12-1 season last year and the Class 8A regional final. He graduated and enrolled early at Florida State, where he played in the Seminoles’ spring game.
