Jameis Winston

VIDEO OF CRAB LEG THEFT

... Released

051514_jameis_winston_launch_v4
Here it is ... surveillance footage showing Jameis Winston STEALING CRAB LEGS ... and it shows, dude is the most casual shellfish bandit of all time. 

The footage, shot April 29th, shows the Heisman Trophy winner nonchalantly walking up to the seafood counter at Publix grocery store in Tallahassee ... grabbing $32.17 worth of crab legs and crawfish ... and walking out of the store without paying for it. 

Note -- you can see Winston follows a security guard out of the store .... and hung an immediate right the second he left the building in what seems like an obvious attempt at a clean getaway. 

Winston later admitted to jacking the food -- and was ordered to serve several hours of community service ... which he completed at a local YMCA.

You can't outrun the long arm of the claw.

Is that all the viedo there is? Because you can't say that he shoplifted this. There's no tape of him walking by the check outs with out checking out. Also, is it possiblel to call ahead and charge over the phone for a pick-up at the counter? Also, could the person behind the counter be in on this because the package was already waiting there? Anyway, he admitted to it, but, was it pre-packaged and waiting for him to come get it? I don't think he just walked right up and took whatever he wanted. He had an exchange witht he person behind the counter. He's taking the entire fall and protecting the other person. Just my thought.

It's clear that someone gave him those crab legs. He makes no attempt to conceal them. This supports what some said was an going "hook up" players had with someone in that seafood department. They were just caught by the cops. I would investigate that staff.

It's discrimination for a fried chicken outlet to be closed
because that' what FORCED him to do this!

Closing fast food outlets is racist and bigoted
and I hope Barry and Michael can now make
all chicken restaurants open 24 hours.

Same to all mexican restaurants, a person of mexican heritage, may want a burrito at 4am...

COACHES AND SCHOOLS ARE THE BLAME. THEY TELL THE STARS AND PEOPLE ON TEAMS SINCE POP WARNER HOW SPECIAL THEY ARE FROM PEE WEE FOOTBALL/LITTLE LEAGUE TO COLLEGE AND TO THE EXCEPTIONAL ATHLETES THIS CONTINUES INTO THE PROS OF ALL SPORTS AND THIS IS WHY JAMEIS IS STEALING. YES, THEY FEEL THERE UNTOUCHABLE AND WONT SUFFER ANY DISCIPLINE FOR THERE ACTIONS AND REALLY JAMEIS DIDNT. I CHEER FOR PEOPLE WHEN THEY DO GOOD, HATE WHEN THEY FALL ON HARD TIMES OR ANYTHING GOES WRONG FOR THEM. THAT SAID, JAMEIS CLEARLY ISNT DEALING WITH THE FAME WELL. LGNM

This is real messed up! Jameis undoubtedly got the hook-up. I mean he walked up and the order was already packaged up for him. I am willing to bet there wasn't even a price on the package. Please cut my dude some slack people.

I said it before. The fix was in with some team booster, and somebody didn't get the memo. He walks up and the order is clearly waiting for him, and then strolls out like everything was kosher.

If he admitted it was a "gift" it would be an NCAA rules violation and the team would be punished and he could get suspended from the team. He did the right thing and took the blame, but somebody else screwed up the hook-up. The hook-up is common and happens a lot in big time college football.

Why? That's clepto behavior. There's no reason for that.
