Video shows De'Andre Johnson punch woman in face

Florida State quarterback dismissed from team hours after video of June 24 made public

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State University head football coach Jimbo Fisher announced Monday that De'Andre Johnson has been dismissed from the team.

The announcement came hours after a video that shows the quarterback punching a woman in the face at a Tallahassee nightclub was made public.

Surveillance video obtained Monday shows a man identified by police as Johnson punching the woman at Yianni's during a June 24 incident.

The video shows Johnson and the woman apparently pushing their way towards the front of the bar. Johnson appears to be nudging his way behind her, at which point she turns around and exchanges words with Johnson.

During the confrontation, Johnson appears to grab the woman's raised hand before she lunges at him with a closed fist.

The video then shows Johnson punch the woman in the face with a closed fist, knocking her back and causing her to spill a drink at the bar.

Johnson disappears from frame, and a few seconds later other women at the bar tend to her.

The two bartenders were seemingly unaware of what happened.

Fisher initially suspended Johnson indefinitely for a violation of athletic department policy.
