Florida State quarterback De’Andre Johnson was charged with misdemeanour battery on June 30 after allegedly punching a woman in a Tallahassee, Florida bar last month.
On Monday the Tallahassee Democrat posted surveillance video of the alleged incident that was released by the State Attorney’s office. The Democrat says the video shows Johnson, 19, punching a woman in the head after an apparent scuffle at the bar.
Johnson is allegedly in the white hat (full video below):
The video seems to follow the way the alleged incident was described in court records obtained by the Tallahassee Democrat last week:
The incident occurred while the woman was waiting in line for a drink at Yianni’s nightclub and felt Johnson push past her aggressively, court records say.
When she addressed him at the bar, she raised her arm to defend herself, and he grabbed her arm and began pushing her. She raised her knee into his midsection to push him away and attempted to punch him, court records say, before Johnson punched her on the left side of her face.
The woman suffered bruising near her left eye, swelling of the left cheek and upper lip, and a small cut near the bridge of her nose, according to court records.
Johnson was suspended by the football team before he was officially charged. He was expected to compete for the starting job, but with the release of the video many in the college football world anticipate he’ll be kicked off the team. We’ve reached out to his lawyer for comment, and will update this post when he responds.
The incident starts at the 1:45 mark:
