The family of Florida State QB De'Andre Johnson believes the woman in the bar fight should be charged with a crime ... claiming she struck DJ first.
Sources connected to the situation tell TMZ Sports ... Johnson's family is upset that the woman is being portrayed as an "innocent victim" in the bar fight that went down on June 24th in Tallahassee.
In fact, we're told the family is adamant the woman was the aggressor. Besides balling up her first and throwing a punch at DJ, we're told Johnson claims she kneed him in the groin before he struck.
We're told Johnson's camp has witnesses that will testify to the testicular assault ... and the family wants the D.A. to charge her with a crime "to be fair." Johnson has been charged with misdemeanor assault.
Sources tell us ... Johnson knows he should NOT have fought back -- and people close to him hope he's able to learn a lesson from the incident and not put himself into that kind of situation again.
