Former San Antonio Spurs star in trouble again


alvin-robertson-spursFormer NBA player Alvin Robertson has reportedly been arrested after after cutting off a GPS monitor while out on bond in a 2009 case.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said Robertson was arrested at a San Antonio apartment complex.

This is while officials say he’d been on the run since Jan. 5.

Reportedly, Robertson was out on bond in a 2009 case in which he was initially charged with trafficking of a person less than 18 for prostitution.

He’d been released from jail Dec. 12 and was required to wear the monitor.

Robertson played 10 seasons in the NBA, his first 5 years with the San Antonio Spurs.

Robertson led the NBA in steals per game three times in his career (1985-86, 1986-87, 1990-91). He also averaged career best 19.6 ppg for the Spurs in 1987-88. Robertson also played for the Milwaukee Bucks, Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors.

Robertson was the one who scored the first ever point in Toronto Raptors history. A troubled player, Robertson’s history included fights with teammates and coaches, criminal charges related to multiple domestic violence incidents, bar fights and a bizarre burglary.

In February 2010, Robertson was arrested and accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl and conspiring with others to force her into prostitution.

Robertson appeared in career 779 NBA games (started 680), averaging 14.0 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 5.0 apg and 2.7 spg in 31.7 mpg. He was a 4-time NBA All-Star during his career.
