The security video of Florida State two-sport star Jameis Winston leaving a Publix supermarket in Tallahassee, Florida, last month without paying for his crab legs and crawfish was released Thursday by the Leon County Sheriff's Office.

The Heisman Trophy winner was issued a civil citation for taking the food, valued at $32.72, on April 29. He told sheriff's deputies later at his home that he forgot to pay.

In the video, Winston enters the store wearing a long-sleeve T-shirt, shorts, and sandals, orders the food from the meat counter, and leaves the store. The video then cuts to a sheriff's deputy at the customer service counter who leaves the area behind the counter.

Winston was suspended from the Florida State baseball team after he received the citation, then reinstated after completing 20 hours of community service and paying for the groceries. The incident won't be shown on his criminal record.

In 2013, Winston led Florida State to a 14-0 record and the BCS national title with a 34-31 win over Auburn and was named the Heisman Trophy winner.

Winston has, however, had more serious brushes with the law.

In December, the state attorney in Florida opted not to charge Winston after a woman accused him of sexual assault.

One month earlier, police were called to an apartment complex in which windows had been damaged by BB guns. Winston and his then-roommate, Chris Casher, told officers they had been involved in "battles" with teammates, but denied shooting the guns.
