Former Arizona State player arrested after threatening to 'spray the stadium up'

Former Arizona State cornerback Robbie Robinson was arrested by ASU and Tempe police on Friday after he allegedly made "terroristic threats" against students and staff at the school. 

According to The Arizona Republic, Robinson has not been enrolled at the school for more than a year. He played sparingly during his freshman season in 2016 but did record an interception in the season-opener against Northern Arizona. In March 2017, news broke that he intended to transfer from the program. 

The arrest records, per the Republic, indicate that Robinson made a post on social media that he wanted to buy a gun to shoot people and "spray the stadium up." Robinson was charged with suspicion of terroristic threats, disruption of an educational institution and possession of marijuana. 

According to 247Sports, Robinson was the No. 45 cornerback and a three-star prospect in the Class of 2016, choosing ASU over Maryland, Virginia, Clemson, Michigan State, Ohio State, Stanford and others.
