TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston and Florida State teammate Chris Casher were held at gunpoint by campus police nearly two years ago while hunting squirrels with a pellet gun, police say.
Officer Anthony Gioannetti responded to a call and found the pair near a campus bike path with a long-barreled pistol. He drew his gun, pointed it at the players and shouted several times for them to get on the ground, police say.
One of the players dropped the gun and Gioannetti kept his weapon drawn until another officer handcuffed the players. The officers then determined the pistol was a pellet gun.
