Dalvin Cook is wanted by Tallahassee PD

The state attorney’s office in Tallahassee will issue a warrant for the arrest of Florida State running back Dalvin Cook, 19, who is accused of punching a 21-year-old woman in the face several times during an argument outside a bar last month, according to The Florida State football players have a serious issue with keeping their hands to themselves. This incident occurred in Tallahassee a day before quarterback De’Andre Johnson sucker punched a female patron at another bar. Johnson was dismissed from the team on Monday night after the state attorney’s office released video showing Johnson tussling with a woman and eventually punching her.

Cook’s incident happened at another bar, Clyde’s and Costello’s, shortly after it closed on June 23. According to the woman, Cook’s companion asked her for her telephone number. She refused. They engaged in a heated exchange. Cook punched her and she says her bottom lip was split and her nose was sore the following day. She dialed 911, reported the incident to the police and pressed charges. On July 1, she singled out Cook in a photo lineup provided by Tallahassee Police Department investigators as the person who struck her.

“They kept telling me they were football players,” the woman said. “They kept telling me to Google them. They told me they were football players and they could buy me in two years.

A native of Miami, Cook will be charged with misdemeanor battery according to State attorney Willie Meggs. The public is awaiting Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher’s next move.

    Cook and Johnson think nothing of punching women. Wondering how many times they hit their mothers. FSU footballs players rape, steal crab legs, punch women and what else?

      How many times would a person be able to threaten you and call you a “cunt” before you popped her in the mouth? And even still, Deandre didn’t strike her until she struck him. She was NOT the victim. She didn’t pull herself away and scream for help in a CROWDED bar. Instead, she pressed her attack and struck a man twice her size thinking, “I’m white, so I can treat this nigger however I want and the world will support me.” It turns out she was only right about the latter part of it. If women are expected to be forgiven when they can’t control their emotions, good luck having a female president, female CEOs, or earning equal pay.

        This is just another FSU baby thug who thinks they have the right to do what they want. He is three times stronger than the girl and wants to impose his strength on her. He could have easily walked away and avoided the situation. I just wonder how many times other people have called him nigger and he did nothing about it because they are friends or other players. The problem here is College athletes think they should be able to do what they want when they want. And then here you go on a rant talking about white people being racist. I am white and live in a mostly African American community and I see it both ways. It is not just white people but people on both sides. I am married to a mexican girl and am just sick and tired of the race shit. Get over it. Let’s just call a spade a spade and put the blame on both of them. She should not have raised her hand and hit him just like he should not have done. The only problem I have is the fact that he is twice her size and could have been a man about it and walked away. It is obvious she could not have beat him up and if her slap hurt him that much or the word nigger pissed him off that much then he should not be playing football int he first place.

        The woman was sitting at the bar minding her own business when she felt some guy bumping her from behind, and instead of saying I’m sorry and walking away the Black Criminal Thug then gets in her Face and then grabs her, that’s Battery, then won’t let her go, I would be pissed too, GTF away from me you stupid Black Thug, he then Punches her in the Face and then Walks away.

        He should get a year in prison for that.

        I couldn’t agree more, Derone. Interesting how so much is said about what a guy should and shouldn’t do when attacked by a woman. But I’m curious why no one tells women to stop being violent in the first place?

        In almost every one of these cases the narrative solely includes what the guys’ reactions should have been, but it’s curious how society seems to think women physically attacking people is the norm.

    She provoked the fight, attacked him for NO reason, and hit him FIRST, and his retaliation was a “sucker punch?” This issue is going to counteract the feminist movement, because if you want to be considered equal, you have to take equal accountability for your actions. White privilege is defined by the notion of being about to kick punch and call a black man “nigger” with impunity. The courts will be on Johnson’s side. This guy hit a woman several times, so it’s different. But Johnson was clearly the victim of an assault. There’s no equivalent to “nigger” for white men, but I ask women, “How many “cunts” would someone be able to call you before you popped her in the mouth? And notice how in a crowded bar, no one came to her aid, not even her friends. SHE was the instigator and the bully, but picked the wrong dude to punch and hopefully learned a life lesson.

      Your thinking process is sick and you are an adult? Feminist movement has been over for years. BTW, I think your women punching buddies are the one’s who learned a lesson.

        Neo-Feminist movement then

    • Jacqueline Patricia Ising on July 11, 2015 at 2:42 pm

      i agree

    • dpierson1216 on July 12, 2015 at 2:12 pm

      Yes so next time a child says something wrong I might as well just punch him or her in the face. And then again you bring race in to it. It has nothing to do with race but that is what you are looking for.

      • ODWms on July 21, 2015 at 8:24 am

        Interesting how society does seem to put women on the level of children. No responsibility for their own actions.

        Keep in mind some women are bigger and stronger than men. But in each case, the example is a guy is 6′ 2″, 200 lbs and a woman is 5′ 2″, 110. Folks, that’s almost never the case. Especially where I come from.

        Bottom line is if the women in most of these cases would just not be violent in the first place, this conversation wouldn’t even have to take place. STOP THE VIOLENCE. Period.

    • Keith on July 13, 2015 at 12:12 pm

      You’re right, she shouldn’t of hit him, she should’ve shot him. That’s called Black Privilege.
