Deandre Johnson is in a little trouble

Incoming freshman quarterback De'Andre Johnson has been regarded by many as the next big thing for the Florida State football program. Today, he's become the next problem for Jimbo Fisher.

According to ESPN.com senior writer Mark Schlabach Johnson has been suspended indefinitely by the Seminoles for, allegedly, punching a woman in the face because she cut in front of him in line at a Tallahassee bar.

According to the sources, Johnson was involved in an argument with the woman after she cut in front of him while they were waiting to order drinks at a bar near the FSU campus. Witnesses told police the woman raised her arms and then Johnson grabbed them and punched her in the face.

Florida State has had some recent issues with signal-callers running afoul of the law, which you may have heard about. Johnson's attorney,Tim Jansen, who has represented a number of Seminole athletes in the past, told ESPN he was unaware of the incident.

Johnson, the 2014 winner of Mr. Football in Florida, was one of a handful of early enrollees for the Seminoles and was hoping to make a case – albeit an unlikely one – for playing time at quarterback in an open competition with Notre Dame transfer Everett Golson and junior Sean Maguire.
