Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois was involved in a domestic incident early Wednesday.

The initial report from Tallahassee.com did not include many details, other than saying police were called to an incident involving Francois at around 12:35 a.m. this morning.

TMZ has obtained the police report from Tallahassee PD. The case appears to be a version of he-said, she-said between Francois and his pregnant girlfriend.

About the only thing that seems certain is Francois was at his apartment with FSU teammate Zaquandre White when the incident occurred.

What occurred next is up for debate, as Francois and his girlfriend are both alleging the other party was the aggressor.

Francois' girlfriend says he was enraged that another guy attempted to talk to her and proceeded to break down the bedroom door.

According to her, Francois threw her to the ground and cut her forearm. It was after the incident that she found out at the hospital she is nine weeks pregnant with what she believes is Francois' child.

Here is Francois' side of the story, per TMZ:

Deondre told police his GF began to smash items, including a vase -- and then tried to pull the TV off the wall. That's when Deondre says he tried to "stop her by picking her up like a hug" to carry her outside so she couldn't break anything else.

Deondre says the GF began to "swing" on him, so he let her go. He claims the woman began to rip her own shirt while threatening to call the police and report domestic violence.

Deondre says that's when he called police himself to respond to the scene. When cops arrived, Deondre's friend, Zaquandre, corroborated every detail of Deondre's story.

No one was arrested because responding officers could not determine whose side of the story was accurate. However, the case is still under investigation.

We will keep you posted with further details.

Francois missed most of last season after tearing his left patella tendon in a season-opening loss to Alabama. In 2016, Francois started all 13 games for the Seminoles as a redshirt freshman.

He threw for 3,350 yards and 20 touchdowns while also rushing for five scores and was named ACC Rookie of the Year. In 2016, Francois started all 13 games for the Seminoles as a redshirt freshman.
