Two weeks after freshman Florida State quarterback De’Andre Johnson was arrested by Tallahassee police for hitting a woman at a bar, The Tallahassee Democrat obtained security footage of the incident.
The fight appears to have begun as a dispute over access to the bar. Johnson can be seen grabbing the woman by the arms, but the woman lashed out, freed one arm, and punched him. Johnson then landed a devastating punch.
Watch via The Tallahassee Democrat, around two minutes in:
The attack left the woman with “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 the Democrat. Johnson has been charged with misdemeanor battery and has been released on bail.
Johnson has been indefinitely suspended by the team. FSU will have to decide whether Notre Dame transfer Everett Golson or junior Sean Maguire will take the starting role come August in the wake of the equally controversial Jameis Winston‘s departure.
