Winston Questioned in BB Gun Incident, Accused of Filling Ketchup Cups with Soda at Burger King

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was reportedly questioned for being involved in a BB gun battle with his teammates and accused of filling ketchup and water cups with soda at a Burger King.

According to the Associated Press, “in the first case, Winston and other FSU players were questioned by police 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.”

Winston is the leading Heisman Trophy contender, but he has been accused of raping a woman last December. Authorities said they would wait a couple more weeks before deciding to press charges. 

According to Tallahassee police records, “officers were called to the Legacy Suites apartments on Nov. 27, 2012, two days after management said 13 windows had been damaged by players shooting at each other”:

Both Winston and his roommate at the time, defensive end Chris Casher, told officers the next day that they had been involved in a series of “battles” involving FSU players that had been going on for a month. They denied shooting any BB guns themselves but said someone threw eggs at their window and shot at them with a paintball launcher.

Police records show the apartment manager, Dave Sudekum, initially wanted to evict Winston and three other tenants but decided to not press charges after an FSU athletic department official promised that the players would pay for the damage.

Sudekum initially told a reporter this week that a previous management company had been involved. When told that his name was on the report, he then said he couldn’t remember the incident, which happened the day after FSU lost to the University of Florida. Winston, a redshirt freshman this season, did not play in the game. FSU athletic department officials have not responded to emailed questions about the incident.

In the Burger King incident, Winston reportedly “came in with three men but did not order food. An employee, who recognized him, first saw him using ketchup cups to take soda. He asked for a water cup after she told him to stop, but he admitted he would use it for soda and filled it repeatedly with soda over her objections, the report said.”

Winston was “never interviewed about the incident because the restaurant declined to prosecute.”
