TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State University football quarterback Jameis Winston has been suspended for the first half of Saturday’s game against Clemson.

ESPN is reporting that Winston was seen shouting an obscene sexual phrase on campus Tuesday.

FSU’s interim president and athletic director denounced Winston’s behavior.  They called his actions ‘offensive and vulgar’ and imposed the punishment of sitting out the first half of the Clemson game.

Winston was investigated in 2013 for sexual assault, but the state attorney did not file criminal charges.

However. Florida State is still following through with its Title IX investigation into the case.

Winston was also in trouble after being cited for stealing $32 of crab legs from a Florida grocery store in April.

He was suspended from the baseball team for three games and had to perform community services for his punishment.
