A security camera recorded the punch everyone is talking about today. The punch Florida State quarterback De'Andre Johnson threw hitting a girl. 

The incident happened in a bar after the two got into a verbal altercation, resulting in punches being thrown. Yes, the young lady did throw the first punch, but did that really warrant a trained athlete to treat her that way?

Now, TMZ is reporting that Johnson says he punched the female in the bar because she used a racial slur towards him.

De'Andre Johnson has apologized for his actions, but maintains that it was the young lady in the bar that initiated the whole thing.

CBS Sports reports that since the tape has been released by the State Attorney's Office, Florida State has elected to dismiss Johnson from its football program.
