  TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston received a civil citation after he was accused of taking crab legs and crawfish from a supermarket.

   The Leon County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that Winston was issued a civil citation after he left a Publix supermarket Tuesday without paying $32 for the food.

   Maj. Michael Wood said that after Winston was contacted by deputies at his apartment, he said he had forgotten to pay.

   Winston was not charged with a crime. If he completes a community service program, no misdemeanor charges will be filed.

   The Florida State baseball team has indefinitely suspended Winston. He is a relief pitcher.

   The 20-year-old Winston was investigated last year when a fellow Florida State student reported that he raped her. But prosecutors said there wasn't enough evidence to charge him.
