Las Vegas was abuzz with news of Raiders defensive end Janarius Robinson’s arrest on Tuesday morning for driving under the influence.
Robinson was stopped by law enforcement on the iconic Las Vegas Strip during Super Bowl week and subsequently booked on a DUI charge around 5:59 am, as reported by TMZ Sports.
Additional details surrounding the 25-year-old’s arrest have surfaced, indicating that the Raiders pass rusher was apprehended in the valet area of the Aria hotel for driving while intoxicated.
Robinson, who was elevated to the active roster from the practice squad in December, has one year remaining on his two-year, $1.8-million contract with the Las Vegas Raiders. Despite his recent legal troubles, Robinson made his regular season debut in Week 12, contributing one tackle in the Raiders’ game against the Chiefs.
Originally a fourth-round pick by the Vikings in 2021, Robinson’s NFL journey has been marred by injury setbacks. He spent his rookie season on injured reserve and later found himself on the injured list again in 2022 after being signed by the Eagles off the Vikings practice squad.
