clifford-robinson-sunsFormer NBA star forward Clifford Robinson is scheduled to appear in NY court, following a recent arrest on multiple charges stemming from a suspected drunken driving stop.

WGRZ reported that police stopped Robinson’s car, after he failed to use a designated merging lane and was found to be intoxicated.

Former NBA star was charged with DWI, DWI with a child passenger in the car, endangering the welfare of a child, second degree aggravated unlicensed operation and traffic violations.

Robinson is subject to at least one felony charge per the terms of Leandra’s Law, a New York State Law that makes it an automatic felony for the first offense of driving drunk with a child 15 years or younger inside the vehicle.

Robinson is a graduate of Buffalo’s Riverside High School and member of the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame. Robinson played college ball at the University of Connecticut, and the NBA.

Robinson played 19 seasons in the NBA, appearing in total of 1380 games (started in 844). He played for Portland TrailBlazers, Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors and New Jersey Nets.

Robinson, a 1994 NBA All-star, averaged career high 21.3 ppg for Portland in 1993-94 season. He holds career averages of 14.2 ppg and 4.6 rpg in 30.8 mpg.

Robinson caught the media spotlight when he was named among other former NBA players who agreed to join Dennis Rodman on his visit to North Korea to play basketball there. He also appeared in “Survivor” earlier in 2014.
