FSU QB Deondre Francois Busted For Weed; Immediately Blames Girlfriend So She Could Be The Fall Guy
Deondre Francois is not having a good 2018 so far.
Back in January, the Florida State Seminoles QB was wrongfully accused by his girlfriend after she told investigators he committed an act of domestic violence against her. It turned out that he asked her to leave his place and she responded by going crazy and breaking things.
A few months later, Francois either never broke up with his girlfriend or he took her back because he’s in trouble once again after someone tipped off cops that he was selling weed.
TMZ has the story:
“More trouble for Florida State QB Deondre Francois — who was just busted for weed in Tallahassee … and immediately tried to throw his GF under the bus.
According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, cops raided Francois’ home on April 12 over a tip he may have been dealing marijuana.
Cops say Francois’ girlfriend, Diamond Simone Lindsey, was in the house at the time of the search — and if you recognize that name, it’s because she’s the same person who accused the QB of domestic violence back in January.
Francois was detained while cops searched the place — but they ultimately determined there wasn’t enough evidence to prove he was slangin’.
Cops did however find 17 grams of “cannabis/tobacco mixture” and “items of drug paraphernalia” on the premises and asked Francois for an explanation.”
Francois did his best to distance himself from what the cops found by trying to turn his girlfriend into his ‘fall guy.’
“Francois attempted to minimize his culpability by saying that he ‘can’t smoke right now’ and saying that the cannabis belonged to [Lindsey].”
Cops ultimately didn’t buy it and cited Francois for possession. FSU coach Willie Taggartsays he’s met with Deondre and is handling the matter internally.”
Here’s his girlfriend that he’s willing to risk everything for:
