(USA TODAY) -- Florida State baseball coach Mike Martin said in a statement Wednesday he has suspended pitcher and Heisman trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston from the Seminoles' baseball team "as a result of his citation" on Tuesday night.

A report by said Winston was cited for shoplifting crab legs at a Publix grocery store in Tallahassee, Fla. The site did not attribute the report. Leon County Sheriff's Public Information Officer Lt. James McQuaig told USA TODAY Sports he would "not confirm or deny anything on Jameis Winston" before a scheduled 2 p.m. ET news conference.

"I am confident he will complete his community service obligation and the situation will be resolved soon," Martin said in a statement released by Florida State.

Florida State football coach Jimbo Fisher said in the release, "I fully support Coach Martin's decision and will also make sure that Jameis meets all obligations, which I know he will."

Leon County Sheriff public records clerk Anita Muellei told USA TODAY Sports the "case was still being processed." Tallahassee Police Department officer David Northway said there were no records of an arrest under their jurisdiction.

Phone calls by USA TODAY Sports have not been returned by Winston's attorney, Tim Jansen, or by the FSU athletics department.
