Jaguars RB Denard Robinson Found Asleep in Sinking Car
Jacksonville — Authorities assisted Denard Robinson and a female passenger early Sunday after the Jaguars running back drove a Chevrolet Impala into a retention pond on Jacksonville’s Southside, according to a Sheriff’s Office crash report. Robinson, 25, was asleep at the wheel when an officer responded, but authorities determined he was not impaired and should not face a DUI charge, according to the report. The driver’s side of the car was submerged in the pond, so the officer approached the passenger side and knocked on the window to wake the two up, according to the report. The report said Robinson then “opened his eyes and then went back to sleep.” The officer continued to knock on the window until the passenger, 29-year-old Marissa O. Staples of Cincinnati, said “what’s up,” according to the report. The officer explained the car was in a pond and they needed to get out. Staples attempted to roll the window back up but the officer was able to reach in and unlock the door, according to the report. Staples had to be pulled from the car because she refused to exit, according to the report, and Robinson was asleep the whole time.
After removing the passenger, the officer was able to wake up Robinson, turn off the car and remove his seat belt, according to the report. Robinson thought he was still on the road and didn’t want to exit the vehicle, according to the report. He tried to open the driver’s side door about three times after the officer repeated that the car was sinking in the pond, according to the report. The door was submerged and Robinson eventually got out of the vehicle through the passenger’s side, according to the report. Neither person was injured, and they refused assistance from rescue workers, according to the report.
What geniuses these two are.
"...authorities determined he was not impaired and should not face a DUI charge, according to the report."
Damn, must have had a really long day at minicamp or something. What person with half a brain would actually believe that he wasn't under the influence of something. It continues to amaze me as stories like this come out just how dumb these athletes are.
This is a guy who went to the University of Michigan, an exceptional school academically, but here he is a few years later KO'd in a SINKING car. Bananas. If I'm in the Jags front office I'm looking at this guy's paycheck and wondering how he's making that kind of money, but being this much of an idiot.
Pretty lackluster numbers out of Denard to say the absolute least. In college he was an incredible player, who was most noted for not tying his shoes. I guess he believes in tying his shoes as much as he does in mixing in a coffee or red bull. My money is on him getting cut.
Figure it out guy, you used to be nice with it.
