Police: FSU QB Sexton Lay in Street, Called Himself God

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Suspended Florida State quarterback Wyatt Sexton was taken to a hospital by police after they say observed him behaving strangely, laying in the street, jumping on a car and telling them that he was God.

Sexton was hospitalized Monday night, and on Tuesday a school official said he was still under medical care at an undisclosed location. He has not been charged with any crime.

Florida State assistant athletic director Rob Wilson said Sexton had been suspended from the team two weeks ago because of a previously undisclosed violation of team rules. He declined to elaborate on what rules Sexton broke and said the incident Monday appeared to be unrelated.

Sexton, 20, is the son of Florida State's assistant head coach and running backs coach Billy Sexton. Wilson said neither head coach Bobby Bowden nor Sexton's father would comment.

Sexton, who will be a junior in the fall, took over the starting quarterback job for the Seminoles at midseason last year. He was expected to compete for the job this year with Drew Weatherford and Xavier Lee who were redshirted as freshmen last year.

An incident report by Tallahassee police officer Zachary Lyne said he was called to a residential neighborhood about a report of a man doing push-ups in the street and acting strangely. Police said they'd also had a call from a different person about a man in the same location laying in the street and yelling at passers-by.

Lyne said he found Sexton in the middle of the road wearing only a wet pair of shorts.

The officer asked Sexton if he was OK and didn't get a response. He asked several times what the man's name was and eventually Sexton replied that he was God.

At one point, the man stepped toward Lyne and then ran away from him. When the officer yelled for him to stop, he turned and got on his hands and knees, yelled obscenities at the officer and stared at him.

Lyne said in his report that he feared Sexton might charge him so he doused him with pepper spray and radioed for assistance.

After other officers arrived, the police handcuffed him and he identified himself as Sexton.

Police said they took Sexton to the hospital fearing he was a danger to himself or others.

Police said that Sexton "appeared to be under the influence of some unknown narcotic or alcohol," but officials at the hospital said they didn't have any information on Sexton, including whether he had been found to be under the influence.

Sexton, who has won honors for his high grade point average, is from Tallahassee. Police said Sexton's roommates told them that Sexton had been at a Dave Matthews Band concert in Tennessee with them earlier Monday. They told police they didn't believe he had been drinking or taking any drugs, but said he had been stressed out over trying to win the starting quarterback job in the fall.

Once at the hospital, Sexton continued to say that he was God and that he didn't know why he was in the hospital, Lyne wrote in his report.
