Ex-NFL player gets 5 years for probation violation
MIAMI (AP) - Former NFL lineman Barret Robbins has been sentenced to five years in Florida prison for a drug-related probation violation.
A Miami-Dade County judge imposed the sentence Friday, more than a year after crack cocaine was found in Robbins' car after a traffic stop near Dallas.
Robbins had been on probation for a 2005 fracas in Miami Beach during which he fought with police officers and was shot and wounded. Court documents say he suffers from bipolar disorder.
Robbins was a Pro Bowl center for the Oakland Raiders, playing a total of nine seasons. He didn't play in the 2003 Super Bowl against Tampa Bay after disappearing several days before the game and then showing up incoherent the night before.
The Raiders released him in 2004 for steroid use.
