De'Andre Johnson, quarterback for the ACC conference Florida State University Seminoles was sacked after a video surfaced of him getting into a confrontation with a woman at a bar in Tallahassee.
The State Attorney's Office in Tallahassee issued an arrest warrant for Johnson Tuesday. Johnson, 19, planted a five knuckle roll on the face of the woman on the night of June 24, according to court documents.
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 five knuckle him, court records say, before Johnson five knuckle 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 left the bar after the incident and the woman remained.
State Attorney Willie Meggs, who will prosecute the case, said the woman still had the black eye when she met with prosecutors.

He will appear in the court in later July. He is innocent until proven guilty.
Now he's lawyer up and telling the junk food media, that "Hey, you didn't see the part where.....!"
And of course, concern trolls have their judgement. I don't have to tell you that it's a bar. I can't tell if the incident was provoked by him or the victim.
He's a 19-year old man and the victim is a 21-year old woman. I choose to not reveal the victim's name for the time being. She's not charged in a criminal act. The junk food media already put her name out there and she's likely going to get death threats.
The owner of Yianni's may see a courtroom as well. After all, the victim or Johnson may sue.
I watched the video. Here's the full video with no edits.
I want to say that I'm speechless. I have no actual thoughts on the matter.
I want to say that the punishment fits the crime. However, given the recent issues I've faced with women, I think a man should be able to defend himself if threaten with physical assault. I still believe that a man should never hit a woman. But no woman should hit a man. They should have just kept their hands to themselves.
I do believe in the double standard.
I don't know whether to justify it or condemn it. I see that it was a provoking situation in which Johnson and the victim were engaged in some combative words.
I see that the woman did raise her fist in a matter that seem threatening.
I see that Johnson tried to restrain her.
I see that she kneed him in the leg.

Okay, cue the concern trolls. Which word vomit would you likely see in a comment section of your blog, social media website or news aggregator?
A) He shouldn't hit the woman. I know that she started it, but he's got a football scholarship and he should have just called the bouncers and had her thrown out.
B) He was the one who started it. You see how he grabbed that woman's hands. He's nothing more than a thug who should have been booted off the team. She was defending herself from this thug.
C) She should be charged for assault too. She hit him first. She had it coming.
D) If I had a son, he would look like De'Andre Johnson.
E) You people don't see the racial violence. Black man hits white woman. Where's our race baiter-in-chief, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson? Will they say White lives matter? They speak up for criminals like Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin.
