While Dominique Robertson should be preparing for his rookie season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers he instead is recovering from two bullet woulds after a bizarre incident.

We now know that Robertson was detained for questioning by a sheriff's department from a neighboring country after he was released on Friday night, and that's just the first red flag. Robertson also told police that he was shot outside an apartment complex in San Bernardino County, but the police found no evidence of a any shooting at the scene.

Furthermore Robertson claims he did not know who shot him, twice, and in fact claims he saw nothing at all and was simply an innocent bystander at the wrong place at the wrong time. His lawyer echoed those sentiments, adding that his client had no previous criminal history, but according to a report from Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times that was a lie.

From the Tampa Bay Times report:

The Carrollton Times-Georgian quoted an arrest report in reporting that an off-duty police officer was trying to disperse a crowd after a fight at an apartment complex when Robertson and a football teammate, Jamal Carr, refused to leave.

According to the report, Robertson "told the officer there would be repercussions because he was alone." When additional officers arrived, the two ran away, and Carr was apprehended quickly. Robertson, identified as being 6 feet 5 and 315 pounds, was located by another officer as he tried to enter his apartment and resisted as he was being handcuffed and "shoved the officer against the wall with his back." Robertson was arrested after a "brief struggle," but the officer tore a tendon in his leg making the arrest and was taken to a hospital for medical attention, according to the report.
This story is getting more bizarre by the minute, and it seems like there's a possibility that Robertson isn't being completely honest here, we expect that this story is far from over.
