TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston appeared to pause to avoid a deputy before walking out of a supermarket without paying for crab legs and crawfish.

That's according to an incident report prepared by the Leon County Sheriff's Office, which issued a civil citation to the Florida State University quarterback and relief pitcher last week after the theft.

The report details what witnesses and video camera at the Publix supermarket saw the night Winston walked out of the store with three pounds of steamed crab legs and a pound of crawfish. Left unclear was whether Winston also stole butter, or just put it in a bin of sale items before he left the store.

Winston was suspended from FSU's baseball team for three games until he completed required community service.
