Video of Florida State quarterback De'Andre Johnson punching a woman in the face at a bar on June 24 has been released by the State Attorney's Office.

After viewing the footage, State Attorney Willie Meggs said the 19-year-old will be charged with misdemeanor battery, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

Johnson, currently suspended from the team, turned himself in to police July 1 after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The freshman's attorney, Jose Baez, released a statement to the Orlando Sentinel saying his client was "embarrassed" by the situation.

While it is clear from the video that De'Andre Johnson was not the initial aggressor, his family wants to take the lead in helping him learn and grow from this experience. He is currently participating in community service, and faith-based programs focused on battered women, substance abuse, and the empowerment of children. De'Andre is extremely embarrassed by this situation and would like to express his heartfelt apologies to everyone, including those who were directly affected, Coach Fisher and his teammates, the entire Florida State University community, as well as his family and friends.

Witnesses claimed the incident stemmed from the woman stepping in front of Johnson in line at the bar.

According to court records obtained by the Democrat, the woman sustained swelling to her left cheek, bruising near her left eye, and a small cut near the bridge of her nose.
