[size=-1]Robbins was inside the office and had a "violent struggle" with detectives before Detective Mike Muley shot the former Oakland Raiders (news) lineman, Hernandez said. [/size]

[size=-1]"The officer was literally fighting for his life, trying to get Mr. Robbins from getting his gun. That's when the shots rang out," Hernandez said. [/size]

[size=-1]Robbins, 31, was rushed to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital in critical condition. Muley suffered minor head injuries in the scuffle and was treated at a hospital and released. [/size]

[size=-1]Hernandez said Robbins was considered a burglary suspect and was expected to face a charge of battery on a police officer. He said police were trying to determine whether Robbins would also face trespassing or burglary charges. [/size]

[size=-1]Robbins had not yet been charged in the case because authorities had not been able to interview him. "We just have to figure out what he was doing there," Hernandez said. [/size]

[size=-1]The often-troubled player is best remembered for disappearing the night before the 2003 Super Bowl in San Diego.

Wow, has this guy ruined his life in the last couple of years.

He's been treated for bipolar disorder and alcohol abuse since his pre-Super Bowl meltdown.

Steroids, alcohol abuse and bipolar disorder are a pretty nasty combination. He needs a lot of help.

It Only Gets Worse for Ex-Raider Barret Robbins

Man -- This guy just has troubles follow him like a breeze.


MIAMI (AP) -- Former Oakland Raiders center Barret Robbins was charged Wednesday with three counts of attempted felony murder, less than a week after being shot during a struggle with a detective investigating a burglary call.

Robbins, a former Pro Bowler, was wounded Saturday night after Miami Beach police found him inside an administrative office at a building housing a nightclub, gym and jewelry store.

A charge of attempted felony murder can be filed when someone is injured during a felony. It carries a possible 30-year prison sentence. The three counts he faces cover three officers involved in his arrest, said Ed Griffith, spokesman for the Miami-Dade County state attorney's office.

Robbins, who suffers from bipolar disorder and alcoholism, also was charged with two felony counts of attempting to deprive an officer of his weapon, two felony counts of resisting an officer with violence and misdemeanor trespassing. The felony counts carry possible five-year sentences. Arraignment was set for Feb. 9.

`Snarling' Robbins charged in fight

MIAMI—Barret Robbins, the former All-Pro centre with the Oakland Raiders, was charged yesterday with three counts of attempted felony murder, and police released an arrest report detailing a scary struggle three officers said they had with the 380-pound Robbins Saturday.

Robbins remains hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

He has had a troubled two years. He disappeared on the eve of the Raiders' 2003 Super Bowl game, missing it, and was cut by the team last July after testing positive for steroids. He was arrested last month after being accused of hitting a security guard at a bar.

After Robbins walked through the rear door of the Playwright Pub in South Beach Saturday, he ignored a request by the head chef to leave and began to try to force an office door open. He was confronted by the officers, who found him in a women's bathroom, the report said.

Robbins was shot twice in the chest, with one bullet penetrating his heart, and dropped to his knees for a moment before yelling an expletive, snarling, laughing and resuming his attack on the officers, the report said. He was shot when he lunged for an officer's gun.

Robbins, who has a bipolar disorder that can make him unpredictable when he is not taking medication, offered no resistance until one officer tried to frisk him. Robbins "without warning spun around" and attacked the officer, the report said.

He sounds like a 5150

How can they even charge this guy, if this doesn't qualify as a mentally insane person what does? In the interview I saw they said he was laughing while he was fighting off three cops. He belongs in a mental hospital not a prison.
