The latest controversy involving Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston is #CrabGate.

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner was first linked to the sea creature when SB Nation's Florida State blog Tomahawk Nation reported on Wednesday morning that he had been busted for stealing crab legs from a Publix supermarket. The Leon County Sheriff’s Office later held a press conference to discuss the matter and announced that Winston had received a citation after allegedly failing to pay for $32 worth of seafood, reported The Associated Press.

Even when details of the incident remained unclear, Twitter wasted no time reacting to the developing story by mocking Winston and creating as many crab puns and memes as possible:
