This is shocking and hard to watch! Florida State Quarterback De’Andre Johnson lost his cool and straight up slugged a woman in the face while at a Tallahassee bar on June 24. The video shows the brutal hit — you’ve been warned!
Ouch. Just, ouch. De’Andre Johnson, 19, quarterback for Florida State University, was put on indefinite suspension after news broke he allegedly hit a woman in the face while they were both in a bar. Security footage video of the incident has been released and it’s clear that De’Andre completely whalloped the woman with a painful punch!
De’Andre was pushing his way through the crowd at the Yiannis bar on June 24, reports the Tallahassee Democrat. A woman waiting by the bar clearly didn’t enjoy De’Andre shoving into her, and the two exchanged words. As the two started to talk, the woman raised up her fist. De’Andre grabbed it, and she struggled to get free. Though she threw the first punch, it was a weak shot that looks like it missed. De’Andre returned fire, clocking the woman right in her face.
The woman raised her fist to reportedly warn De’Andre, reports TMZ. He didn’t offer the same courtesy, blasting her in the face before leaving the bar. She reportedly suffered a black eye, a cut on her nose and swelling all over the face after that brutal shot.
De’Andre turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest, before paying the $500 bail. He’s being charged with misdemeanor battery. Florida State University placed De’Andre on indefinite suspension when the initial report came out. The woman is reportedly going forward with battery charges, which could possibly end De’Andre’s college football career.
Rule 1: Don’t punch someone. Rule 2: If you break the first rule, don’t offer a weak apology. After Afroman, the one-hit-wonder rapper known for the song, “Because I Got High,” knocked out a fan with an intense punch in Feb, he apologized on twitter. “It is what it is,” he tweeted. Very lame.
What do you think should happen to De’Andre for punching that woman, HollywoodLifers?
