Ex-Raiders center Barret Robbins released from jail

Disgraced and troubled ex-Raiders center Barret Robbins was released from a Miami area jail after spending a year and a half behind bars for drug possession and probation violation.

Troubled ex-Raiders center Barret Robbins was released from the Dade Correctional Institute near Miami, Florida on Tuesday after spending the last year and a half there for a probation violation.

Robbins is best known for deserting the Raiders the night before the 2003 Super Bowl. The Raiders lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Robbins was shortly after checked into the Betty Ford Clinic and diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

He has struggled with substance abuse for years that most recently resulted in a five-year prison sentence in 2011 for drug possession and probation violation. Robbins parole stems from a 2005 incident involving a fight with three police officers that resulted in three attempted murder charges.

Via the CBS affiliate in Miami, Robbins was less than pleasant when asked if he should apologize to the police officers he attacked, saying, "You know what, cancel this, erase this. Erase what you got, I don't want any part of this s**t."
