Police investigating Florida State QB Deondre Francois after alleged domestic violence incident

White advised that Francois only touched Lindsey to try to prevent her from breaking things and to defend himself once she "swung at him", police said.

Francois then asked his ex to leave, which caused her to become angry.

The woman told police she was nine weeks pregnant and that she had previously told Francois about the pregnancy, so "he should have known". He says that's when cut her arm and ripped her shirt.

He told police he tried to stop her by picking her up, "like a hug" and tried to carry her outside.

The cut, Francois told police, came from a vase she'd broken during the fight.

Francois, a former Orlando Olympia High standout, called police to his apartment after an argument ensued between him and his girlfriend.

When asked about his girlfriend's pregnancy, Francois told police his girlfriend had told him that she was pregnant, but had not provided any proof of the pregnancy.

A witness provided a sworn statement saying Francois only made contact with his ex-girlfriend after she began to smash items in the home. She continued to keep breaking things, so Francois called the police. Police closed the case Wednesday without filing charges.

Florida State University quarterback Deondre Francois, who played his senior season at IMG Academy, is under investigation for alleged domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

Warchant.com documented both versions of events.

This past season, Francois tore a patellar tendon during a season-opening loss to Alabama. FSU started the year 3-6 but finished the season winning four in a row to finish 7-6. He threw for 3,350 yards and 20 touchdowns while also rushing for five scores and was named ACC Rookie of the Year. He was the Seminoles' starting quarterback as a redshirt freshman during the 2016 season. One target high on FSU's list is dual-threat quarterback James Foster of Montgomery, Ala.

As a redshirt freshman, Francois threw for 3,350 yards with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions in 2016, helping the Seminoles to a 10-3 record, which included an Orange Bowl victory over MI at season's end.
