The off-the-field trouble continues to swarm Florida State’s football team.
Days after quarterback De’Andre Johnson was dismissed from the team after a video surfaced of him punching a woman in a bar, the latest involves star running back Dalvin Cook, a sophomore out of Miami.
A warrant has been issued for his arrest after he allegedly punched a woman in the face several times outside of a bar last month, according to ESPN:
The state attorney’s office in Tallahassee will issue a warrant for the arrest of Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, who is accused of punching a 21-year-old woman in the face several times during an argument outside a bar last month.
State attorney Willie Meggs told ESPN.com on Friday that he had met with the woman, who is not a Florida State student, and a female witness on Friday. Cook’s accuser presented Meggs photos of her injuries.
Meggs said Cook, a 19-year-old sophomore from Miami, will be charged with misdemeanor battery.
“I found the women to be very credible,” Meggs said.
The alleged incident occurred the night before former Seminoles quarterback De’Andre Johnson punched another woman at a different bar near the FSU campus on June 24. Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher dismissed Johnson from the team on Monday night, only hours after the state attorney’s office released surveillance video showing Johnson punching a 21-year-old FSU student in the face.
