NFL | Florida Judge Revokes Robbins' Bail

The Associated Press reports a Florida judge revoked bail Tuesday, Aug. 23, for former Oakland Raiders C Barret Robbins on charges of attempted murder stemming from a brawl with police officers because of his recent arrest in Texas on a drug charge. Robbins, who was shot by Miami Beach officers during the January fight, has been in a Houston psychiatric hospital since his arrest Aug. 13 in San Antonio on a marijuana possession charge. Robbins suffers from bipolar disorder and it remains unclear when he will be fit to return to Florida. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Kevin Emas revoked the $51,000 bond that Robbins posted in the Florida case, but Robbins attorney, Edward O'Donnell, said his client "is in a lockdown situation" and cannot travel immediately. "He's not fit to be discharged," O'Donnell said. Emas says she wants answers as soon as possible. "I want to know, when can he surrender in court? I need him in front of me," the judge said. O'Donnell said he would give the judge a date for Robbins to return after conferring with his Texas doctors.
