TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is under investigation in an alleged sexual assault reported nearly a nearly a year ago.
The university and Winston’s attorney confirmed Wednesday that the Tallahassee Police Department is conducting an investigation.
Winston has been spectacular for the No. 2 Seminoles in his first college season and the redshirt freshman is one of the leading contenders for the Heisman Trophy. He has passed for 2,661 yards and 26 touchdowns to help Florida State win its first nine games and move into position for a spot in the BCS national championship game.
Tallahassee Police Department officials refused to answer any questions, although they did release a heavily redacted two-page incident report. The report does not mention Winston by name, but it says the incident took place between 1:30 and 2 a.m. last Dec. 7.
Timothy Jansen, a Tallahassee attorney, said Winston hasn’t been interviewed by police.
