When it rains, it pours. After missing the entire 2017 football season with a knee injury, Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois was recently involved in an incident of domestic violence with a woman claiming to be carrying his baby. Due to conflicting statements from both parties, he is no longer being investigated.
“Multiple sources have confirmed that Tallahassee Police responded to an apartment complex in reference to a domestic battery involving Francois at about 12:35 a.m.,” according to the Tallahassee Democrat. “Additionally, police call notes show officers responded to a domestic incident at the same time.”
The woman reported that Francois broke down crying on the bedroom floor, stood up and threw her to the ground, resulting in a cut on her arm. Francois claims that he was trying to give her a hug to help her avoid breaking items in the apartment, which resulted in the cut on her arm.
She did not want to press charges, and didn’t provide paperwork proving that she was pregnant with his child.
