Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was allegedly involved in two minor incidents in 2012 that came to light this week, according to records obtained by the Associated Press from city officials. Winston was not arrested or charged in either instance, and both situations are unrelated to an ongoing investigation that he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman.

The 19-year-old Winston and other FSU players were questioned in November 2012 after 13 windows were broken at an apartment complex following a BB gun battle near the team's stadium, the Associated Press reported Wednesday based on records obtained from Tallahassee city officials through a Freedom of Information request.

Winston and his then-roommate, Chris Casher, a defensive end on the team, told officers they had in fact in been involved in "battles" with other members of the team, but they denied shooting the BB guns.

The apartment complex manager had sought to evict Winston and three other tenants but ultimately decided against the eviction after an official with the FSU athletic department promised that the players would pay for the damage.

The second incident that was made public on Wednesday indicates a Burger King employee called police to report Winston was stealing soda. Winston allegedly entered the Burger King with three other men, did not order food and starting using ketchup cups to fill with soda. He was never questioned by police because the owner of the Burger King restaurant decided not to prosecute.

Winston is being investigated for an alleged sexual assault last December. He has denied the allegations.
