MIAMI -- A judge ordered former Oakland Raiders center Barret Robbins jailed for at least two weeks Wednesday because he possessed marijuana while awaiting trial on attempted murder charges stemming from a brawl with police officers.

Defense attorney Edward O'Donnell said Robbins, who has a history of mental illness, would get medication while jailed. He said his client has been doing well in treatment.

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Kevin Emas scheduled a hearing for Sept. 21 to see if Robbins could be treated elsewhere for his bipolar disorder.

Robbins was shot and seriously wounded by Miami Beach officers during the January fight. He was transferred to a Texas hospital in April after posting a $51,000 bond. He was arrested in San Antonio on Aug. 13 after a bicycle officer smelled marijuana in his car. He spent time in a Houston psychiatric hospital before coming to Miami for the hearing Wednesday.

Robbins has pleaded not guilty to the attempted murder charges. He fought with several Miami Beach officers after they answered a burglary call in a building that housed a pub, gym and jewelry store. They shot him twice in the chest.

Robbins' public troubles began when he disappeared before the Super Bowl in San Diego in early 2003, then showed up the night before the game in an incoherent state and was deactivated for the game.

After spending a month in an alcohol rehabilitation center, Robbins lost weight and regained his spot in the Raiders' starting lineup the following year.

But the Raiders released him last summer after he tested positive for steroids. Before the Miami Beach fight, he was arrested for allegedly hitting a security guard in San Francisco.

He needs to start selling his own nationwide tour t-shirt. "Barrett Robbins - The Nationwide Crime Spree Tour".

The poster boy for forced medications. He seems to be fine when he is on the right drugs. When he is not though, I wouldn't want to be in the same town.

I am surprised he is still not playing on the Raiders. He would fit right in with the other jailbirds.

I feel bad for the guy. I don't think he's a criminal but he does need to spend the rest of his life under medical supervision in some sort of facility. If that doesn't happen it will end badly for him and possibly somebody else.

Not a criminal? WTF!!
It sounds like he's the Mike Tyson of the NFL. You can't go around cracking cops skulls to the point that you get shot twice in the chest to be stopped. I would call that criminal! And as much as I like the gonja it's still a crime to posess.
