Knicks Nate Robinson Arrested

Robinson stopped, arrested

Associated Press
NEW YORK -- New York Knicks player Nate Robinson was arrested Tuesday for driving without a license.

Police said Robinson was arrested after officers pulled him over in the Bronx at about 5:30 p.m. and discovered he had a suspended license.

The Knicks guard was taken to the 52nd Precinct and charged with aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and issued a summons to return to court at a later date, police said.

A Knicks spokesman said they were aware of the situation and would discuss it with Robinson directly.

Robinson is a restricted free agent, meaning the Knicks can match any offer he receives from another team. The club has said it hopes to keep the popular guard at the right price.

Robinson was in New York to work at a basketball camp. In a series of postings on his Twitter page late Tuesday night, he apologized to the Knicks, his family and his fans, and thanked the police.

The NBA's slam dunk champion explained that he believed he was being pulled over for tinted windows but learned it was because he had an unpaid ticket that led to the suspended license. He added the matter would be cleared up.

Guess this means he'll definitely be returning to NY? Well it ain't that bad, but the timing is turrible.

It's not like he was taking drugs or was intoxicated. He co-operated with the police and even thanked them. Sometimes the press blows things up too much. By the way the artcile was worded, you'd think Nate was a hardened criminal.

His license was suspended for a reason. I'm not sure how reporting the story blows it out of proportion.

If it were any pro athlete it would have made the news.

What is " aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle " ??? Sounds like he mouthed off to the cops.

I have been stopped many times without my license. The worst I got was to show up at the station with it. How do you get arrested for not having a license ??

It means he had his license taken away because he couldn't handle following the rule and later he got stopped for for driving on a suspended license. They probably h ad his record up before they even got out of the car and seen that the vehicle was registered to a guy on suspension.

He was arrested because its the law. I'm glad they didn't let him off the hook. Average Joe on the street would not have gotten off for doing that.

i don't see how this is blown out of proportion... he broke the law, was arrested and will likely face the minimum penalty. he's a celebrity sports figure in the biggest sports market in north america. of course it's going to get covered.

Thanks Apollo. Thats an awkward term for the crime. And there are worse crimes. I think we can let this one slide. I will still cheer for Kyrpto-Nate.

his liicence was suspended, and he drove anyway.
he deserves to be arrested for whatever that crime may be.
he's a big boy, he can pay the fine or whatever and deal with the consequences.

poeple's driver's licences dont get suspended for no reason... there was a reason it was suspended in the first place, and he still drove anyway.
i dont see how its blown out of proportion. he's a media figure, and its interesting news.

It's not that big of a deal. He just got arrested because he didn't pay a ticket that he received previously.

I feel bad for him. He had a decent season lat year averaging around 17 points and NY is too cheap too sign him. He's kind of stressed waiting for offers.
