-- Jameis just released a statement, saying, "I went to the supermarket with the intent to purchase dinner but made a terrible mistake."

11:07 AM PT -- Officials say Jameis Winston stole $32.72 worth of food from Publix grocery store -- crab legs and crawfish ... and they have the VIDEO to prove it.

Cops say they responded to a complaint that Winston stole the food around 10pm Tuesday night. 

Investigators went to Winston's home ... where he said he "forgot" to pay ... but made no effort to return to the store to pay. 

Winston was NOT arrested, but given a "pre-arrest civil citation" -- and is required to complete 20 hours of community service. 

If he fails to complete the community service, he could be prosecuted for shoplifting.

As we all know, FSU made millions upon millions of dollars by not only going to the national championship, but also winning it. All I'm saying is, the student athlete should be rewarded some type of monetary benefit. Not a salary, but something. And that's for all college sports that generate money.
