Ex-Raider shot in scuffle with police

St. Louis Post-Dispatch



Former Oakland Raiders center Barret Robbins was shot and critically wounded Saturday night in a struggle with a police officer investigating a burglary at a South Beach office building.

The former All-Pro was hospitalized in critical condition. Robbins, who was known for erratic behavior, was shot several times in the torso in a "violent struggle" with a Miami Beach detective, police spokesman Bobby Hernandez said.

"The officer was literally fighting for his life, trying to get Mr. Robbins from getting his gun. That's when the shots rang out," Hernandez said.

Robbins, 31, was confronted in a second-floor office in the building, which also houses a nightclub, gym and jewelry store. He was considered a burglary suspect, but no charges have been filed, Hernandez said.

Hernandez said authorities had not been able to interview Robbins, but the former offensive lineman is expected to face a charge of battery on a police officer. Hernandez also said police were trying to determine whether Robbins would face trespassing or burglary charges.

Detective Mike Muley, who fired the shots, had minor head injuries from the scuffle and was treated at a hospital and released.

Robbins was taken to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

The often-troubled player has been in trouble before. He was arrested last month in San Francisco for hitting a security guard at a night club. In 2003, he disappeared the night before he was to play for Oakland in the Super Bowl in San Diego. He spent Super Bowl Sunday in a hospital and later acknowledged that he had stopped taking his medicine for depression and bipolar disorder.

Oakland released Robbins last July, a week after he and two other players were fined for testing positive for the steroid THG.

The Warning Signs Of An Impending Bipolar Disorder Manic Episode

Bipolar disorder - as the name implies - involves two distinct set of symptoms. One set throws the individual down into the depths of a massive depression. The other places the individual who suffers with bipolar disorder at the top of a peak manic episode.

Most everyone can eventually recognize the warning signs of an impending depressive episode related to bipolar disorder. More likely than not, individuals with bipolar disorder try very hard to avoid it.

However, for many individuals with bipolar disorder, it's more difficult to recognize the signs of an impending manic episode. After all, a manic episode of bipolar disorder can be mistaken in some cases - especially in the very early formation -- for the lifting of the corresponding mood swing of the depression.
