Bucks' Robinson arrested

Posted: Sunday, July 21, 2002

CHICAGO HEIGHTS, Ill. (AP) -- Milwaukee Bucks star Glenn Robinson was arrested early Saturday and charged with domestic battery, assault and illegal possession of a firearm.

Robinson remained in custody late Saturday waiting for a bond hearing Sunday morning, Chicago Heights Police Department Sgt. David Wierzbicki said.

Robinson had a firearm when he was arrested, but did not have a valid Illinois Firearm Owner's Identification card, Wierzbicki said. Police would not release further details.

A message left at the home of Bucks spokeswoman Cheri Hanson was not immediately returned Saturday night.

Robinson, the former Purdue player, was the NBA's top draft pick in 1994 and signed a 10-year, $68 million contract with Milwaukee. He later signed a $12 million contract extension for the 2004-05 season.

Before the 1999-00 season, Robinson was arrested outside a Miami nightclub on disorderly intoxication charges.
