Former Raiders center Barret Robbins reportedly was placed on probation Aug. 21, 2006 and ordered to continue treatment for bipolar disorder under a plea agreement resulting from a brawl with Miami police who shot him.
Robbins, 32, received five years' probation under the agreement approved by Miami-Dade county Circuit Judge Leon Firtel, who also ordered the former Pro Bowl center to avoid alcohol while on probabtion. Firtel found Robbins guilty of five chargers, including attempted murder and battery. The remaining charges were dropped.
The case had been scheduled to go to trial Aug. 28.
Robbins (right) reportedly was shot three times and seriously wounded during the Jan. 15, 2005 brawl with police who were answering a burglary call at a Miami Beach building. Three police officers were injured in the melee, including one whose head was rammed into a wall.
The Miami brawl was the most violent of several bizarre episodes involving Robbins, who played for the Raiders 1995 to 2003. In January 2003, he disappeared from the Raiders a few days before Super Bowl XXXVII in San Diego and was deactivated for the game after showing up incoherent at the team hotel the night before.
Robbins regained his spot in the starting lineup the next season after undergoing treatment at an alcohol rehabilitation center, then was released in 2004 by the team after testing positive for steroids. The former Texas Christian lineman was arrested for allegedly hitting a security guard in San Francisco before the Miami Beach fight.
