Atlanta United US international linebacker Miles Robinson was arrested Saturday on one count of misdemeanor theft, according to an incident report from the Cobb County Sheriff’s Department.

Robinson also gave a trespassing warning. Following the incident, he was released on $150 bail.

Atlanta United released the following statement: “We are aware of the recent misdemeanor arrest involving Miles Robinson. We are continuing to collect information related to this incident. All information, there will be no further comment at this time.”

ESPN, the incident took place at PBR, a bar near Truist Park, home of the Atlanta Braves.

In the report, Robinson allegedly refused to pay the $5 he took off the drink tray. The bartender notified management, who asked police to escort Robinson from the premises and “trench trespass”.

After being detained by the police, Robinson is told that all he has to do is pay for the sake and he can leave. Robinson reportedly responded, “It’s all over five dollars, bro…”

Robinson reportedly accused the bartender of being racist

report reads: “Robinson said, ‘You only want to listen to racist bartenders, you won’t listen to me. I tried to explain to Robinson , the bartender saw him drinking, then walked away and alerted the manager. Robinson didn’t listen, but said it was the case because he was the only black male in the bar.

” Detective Goduto then explained to him that all he had to do was pay the bill, and if he didn’t pay the bill, the manager wanted to prosecute for theft. Again, Robinson said it was all over five dollars. Robinson did not say he was going to pay the bill. “

Robinson missed most of the current MLS season after tearing his right Achilles tendon on May 7, with an almost certain injury ruling him out Outside of the 2022 World Cup starting in November.
