Robbins arrested

According to an Associated Press report, former Pro Bowl center Barret Robbins was arrested Friday for hitting a security guard at a night club.

The ex-Oakland Raiders lineman was arrested about 7 a.m. after he was told the bar he was trying to enter was closed, according to the San Francisco Sheriff's Department. Robbins was charged with battery and drunk and disorderly conduct. He was still in jail Friday evening, held on $1,000 bond.

Often troubled, Robbins is best remembered for disappearing the night before the 2003 Super Bowl in San Diego. He spent Super Bowl Sunday in a hospital and later acknowledged that he had stopped taking his medicine for depression and bipolar disorder. The Raiders lost 48-21 to Tampa Bay.

Robbins was released by Oakland in July, a week after he and two other players were fined three game checks for testing positive for the steroid THG.
