Linebacker Jerry Robinson of the Raiders was arrested for investigation of drug possession Thursday after speeding through an accident scene and leading deputies on a chase, a sheriff's spokesman said.
Rock cocaine and non-prescription codeine were allegedly found in the car of the eight-year National Football League player after he was stopped by L.A. County sheriff's deputies.
The deputies were stopping traffic at the scene of a major auto accident near Rancho Palos Verdes when Robinson allegedly sped through a flared-off area at about 1:30 a.m., Deputy Pete Fosselman said.
Robinson, 30, was driving a gray Mercedes-Benz. The former three-time UCLA All-American was taken to the Lomita sheriff's station and booked for investigation of driving under the influence of drugs and possession of controlled substances, Fosselman said.
