Alvin Robertson Rumors

All NBA Players

Authorities say former San Antonio Spurs player Alvin Robertson has been arrested after cutting off a GPS monitor while out on bond in a 2009 case. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office says 52-year-old Robertson was arrested Monday afternoon at a San Antonio apartment complex. Officials say he’d been on the run since Jan. 5 after cutting off the monitor. Sheriff’s officials say Robertson, a former NBA All-Star whose career ended in 1996, was out on bond in a 2009 case in which he was initially charged with trafficking of a person less than 18 for prostitution. He’d been released from jail Dec. 12 and was required to wear the monitor.

Former NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson had been set to appear in court Monday to ask for less restrictive bond conditions while awaiting trial on a child sex trafficking charge. But the hearing was cancelled after the ex-Spur failed to show. Attorneys and representatives from Bexar County Pretrial Services waited about 20 minutes in 399th state District Court. Because his whereabouts are tracked with a GPS ankle monitor, the group was able to determine that he was still at home.

For the third time this year, Bexar County authorities have arrested former NBA All-Star Alvin Robertson. Robertson, 48, a San Antonio resident who played with the Spurs from 1984 to 1989, was arrested Friday night. He has been awaiting trial since February on a first-degree felony sex trafficking of a minor charge. Earlier Friday, state District Judge Juanita Vasquez-Gardner ordered that his bail be increased from $150,000 to $200,000 after a Bexar County Pretrial Services bond officer raised allegations that he met with a co-defendant and has ignored a no-contact order regarding an alleged adult victim.
