Surveillance Video Shows Florida State QB De’Andre Johnson Punching A Woman In The Face
The State Attorney’s Office in Florida has released security camera footage of Florida State University quarterback, De’Andre Johnson, punching a woman in the face at a Tallahassee bar last month. A warrant was issued for the 19-year-old Johnson, who turned himself in six days after the June 24th incident.
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 charged with misdemeanor battery and released on Thursday on $500 bond.
