Former LSU defensive back Rashard Robinson was arrested for unauthorized entry into the apartment of Tigers quarterback Anthony Jennings on the same June day that Jennings and two other football players were booked in a separate incident.
Records obtained by The Advocate show that Jennings filed a report with LSU Police on June 10 for items he claimed were stolen. In the report, he accused Robinson of being in his apartment.
Robinson, suspended from the team last fall and then dismissed after the season, later admitted to being in the home and was arrested on June 12. Authorities could not link Robinson to the stolen items, the report states.
LSU receiver Malachi Dupre, Jennings' roommate, spotted Robinson in the apartment and told Jennings, the affidavit said. Robinson told police the apartment was unlocked and he entered to use the restroom, according to the affidavit.
Also on June 12, Jennings, defensive back Dwayne Thomas and defensive lineman Maquedius Bain allegedly walked into another student’s apartment to retrieve items stolen from Jennings. They were arrested for unauthorized entry into a dwelling six days later.
The news of Robinson’s arrest emerged hours after East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore announced he was not charging Jennings, Bain and Thomas with crimes.
Contacted Friday evening, Moore said Robinson’s case was sent for pretrial diversion but was rejected. Moore has not reviewed the case.
“I’m assuming he may have other issues,” Moore said about the case being rejected.
When contacted about Robinson, LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette issued the following statement: “He’s not part of the program. I have no idea what his future holds, but it’s not at LSU.”
Robinson posted a $2,000 bond two days after his arrest, court records show.
On June 10, Jennings reported stolen a MacBook Air, three pairs of shoes and a PlayStation 4. Jennings told police Bain had retrieved the laptop from Nicholas Anderson, who bought it from a person nicknamed “Doodaman,” the report says.
