Michigan WR ‘wanted’ after missing court date

A minor injury knocked Jerald Robinson out of Michigan’s spring game over the weekend.

Now an off-field issue has left the wide receiver as a “wanted man”.

According to AnnArbor.com, a warrant was issued for Robinson’s arrest March 23 after the receiver failed to appear for an arraignment hearing.  That appearance stemmed from a Feb. 4 incident in which Robinson was charged with one misdemeanor count of malicious destruction of property between $200 and $1,000.

No details were available as to what led to the initial charge.  That charge was news to the football program.

“This is all new information to us, and we can’t really comment any further than that at this time,” spokesman Dave Ablauf told the website in a statement.

As the website wrote, Robinson is considered one of the prime contenders for a spot in the starting lineup in 2012.  As a redshirt freshman last season, Robinson played in 11 games but didn’t record a reception.

UPDATED 11:47 a.m. ET: According to ESPN.com, the warrant that had been issued for Robinson’s arrest has been lifted after the receiver appeared in court Friday morning.  The warrant was officially cancelled at 9:08 ET today, court records indicated.

    Sounds like coach may have to boot another player.

    Get kicked outta school for driving thru a parking lot gate and then don’t show for court….dumbass. To quote the great philosopher of our time, Hawk Harrelson, “He gone!”

    Did anyone check if he enrolled at Auburn yet? They really like character players like Jerald Robinson.

    If the team was truly unaware, he’s first in trouble for non-disclosure.

    Coach Hoke will give him the opportunity to explain and see what discipline will be warranted. Guaranteed, ‘some’ will be handed out.

    If CFT is going to post a story, at least post the whole thing. The kid missed his court date because the information from the police/court was sent to an old address at which he no longer lived. It’s college, so most people move every year. That doesn’t excuse him being an idiot from driving through a parking gate, but I don’t think it deserves a warrant being placed out for an arrest. Next thing you know they’ll put him on America’s Most Wanted! And really? The police and district attorney have to ruin this kid’s reputation over a misdemeanor offense? How about you find all the people that probably got free parking once this kid broke the gate!

    @Barnes – Gotta remember this is run the Notre Dame Broadcasting Company. They still believe Michael Floyd is a high character individual. Not the most reliable source of information is NDBC.

    Another UM athlete in trouble with the law…hard to believe. This is a renegade program.
