KU basketball player Thomas Robinson cited in misdemeanor battery case outside nightclub

Lawrence police have cited Kansas University basketball player Thomas Robinson to appear in municipal court on a misdemeanor battery charge in connection with an altercation outside a Lawrence nightclub, city prosecutor Jerry Little said Tuesday morning.

Little said officers informed him that they had cited Robinson, 20, in connection with an April 10 incident outside The Cave, a nightclub inside The Oread hotel and condominiums, 1200 Oread Ave.

Police have said two suspects were accused of hitting bouncers at 2:05 a.m. April 10 outside The Cave after bar staff said they broke up a large fight inside the club.

Capt. Paul Fellers in a statement said that police were called about a fight and that one bouncer, a 25-year-old Lawrence man, alleged that one suspect had struck him and then spit on him. A witness alleged a second suspect had hit another bouncer, a 23-year-old Lawrence man, Fellers said.

According to a police report, the two victims were not injured. Police did not identify the two suspects, but Sgt. Matt Sarna, a police spokesman, said Tuesday morning that only one person has been ticketed.

Adam Lauridsen, a bouncer at The Cave who worked the night of the incident, told the Journal-World that several members of the basketball team were outside the bar around closing time as staff members were clearing people out of the club.

One of the people who was accompanying basketball players — but not himself a player — got angry at another bouncer, Lauridsen said, and eventually hit him in the head.

Several members of the basketball team — including Robinson — began pulling the man away from the other bouncer, Lauridsen said.

During that scuffle, he saw Robinson appear to get angry.

“He hit one of my buddies in the head,” Lauridsen said, adding that he also saw Robinson spit on the bouncer.

Robinson is a current KU sophomore and post player from Washington, D.C. He announced earlier this month that he would return to KU for a third season instead of entering his name in June’s NBA draft.

“We are aware of this situation due to the fact that Thomas notified me immediately following his being interviewed by the police that morning, at approximately 2 a.m. about an incident that occurred just prior," KU coach Bill Self said. "Thomas is fully cooperating and we will not have any further comment about this situation as the investigation plays out.”

Sarna of the police department said the case remains under investigation and it’s possible other people could be charged. According to a police report, an officer did not check that Robinson was suspected of using alcohol.

Little, the city prosecutor, said officers served Robinson with the ticket Monday night. Police told Little that officers had been following up on the investigation in recent days, including interviewing other witnesses.

He said Robinson would have a court appearance in coming weeks or an attorney could appear in court on his behalf to schedule a later court date.

“We're handling it internally, and Thomas is handling it appropriately. That's all we're going to say at this point,” Jim Marchiony, an associate KU athletic director, said Tuesday.

Robinson is the second KU basketball player to be charged with misdemeanor battery in municipal court in recent months. Mario Little, who was a senior on last season’s Elite Eight team, entered into a diversion agreement in January that required he participate in anger management counseling. He was arrested in connection with a Dec. 16 incident in which he was accused of shoving his 22-year-old ex-girlfriend into a sink.

Self suspended Mario Little for six games during the season before Little was reinstated.

I have been in that bar multiple times and the bouncers think they are tough and start things for fun. The other thing is the bouncers arent that big if T Rob had hit one of those guys they would probably have had a broken jaw and definitely would not have been awake to give a statement to anyone! This is just a bouncer trying to look cool and say he took a punch from Thomas Robinson and wasn,t even hurt by it.

Do not agree with "it has nothing to do with the kind of athletes we recuit". Kids who get bounced out of their prep schools, or hang with bad crowds before college, are likely to find more trouble. Just look at the incidents over the past 10 years.

ps: Sounds like there may be another shoe dropping soon:

The witness also observed an unidentified second suspect, said to be around 6 feet 7, hit another victim, a 23-year-old Lawrence resident.

Sarna said more citations could be coming.

Ever since Naismith invented the game of basketball college basketball players have been going to bars and getting their drink on, getting their party on and basically doing what college kids do. At know time in our storied history can I ever remember of our basketball players ever getting in this much trouble. It has nothing to do with the kind of atheletes we recruit but it does have everything to do with the expectations put on these atheletes when they arrive. The expectations used to be sky high in terms of behavior, the expectations have now, for whatever reason been lowered. Behavior that was once taboo is now tolerated. This tolerance over time has caused a behavorial downfall that just may have a snowball effect if it hasn't already. Let me be clear on this, THE DISCIPLINE ALWAYS STARTS AND ENDS WITH THE HEAD COACH. Hard decisions need to be made as to the direction of this program and what is going to accepted discipline wise both on and off the court.

Most of the Lawrence bouncers are just pissed off idiots on a power trip. I've even seen some of these fine, upstanding Cave bouncers pushing women out of the club at closing time (which, per Mario Little, should result in these moronic bouncers getting slapped with a battery charge as well.)

The account provided by Adam Lauridsen isn't even coherent.

Nothing good EVER happens at closing time.

Thomas's involvement started when he was pulling people away from a fight/altercation. Then he snapped. Based on everything he has been through. I can see a number of reason why he could have snapped. But the fact remains, he put himself in that situation by hanging out at closing time (along with other team members).

Nothing good EVER happens at closing time.

Fair or unfair, the frequency of student athlete altercations is what I expected if KU would have signed Calipari. And, hey, maybe Calipari is unfairly criticized too.

What this boils down to is ... KU better police itself or the NCAA will.

I'll wait for the facts to come out on this before judging. I don't know about anyone else but when I was frequenting clubs many of the bouncers were thugs looking for an excuse to clock someone.

actorman 3 years ago

Funny how IrishDaddy continues to ignore the slightly pertinent point that all of these "facts" come from ONE person! Nobody approves of "spitting on and hitting employees ..." But most people (IrishDaddy apparently excluded) also don't approve of rushing to judge someone who has NO history of trouble and who in fact has displayed admirable restraint in the past (see Cal game).

If actual facts come out showing that TRob is guilty, I will be tremendously disappointed in him and he should be suspended for a few games. And there's no question that it's been a rough few years in general for the KU athletic department. But I for one am going to wait to see what comes out before jumping on someone with no previous indication of this type of behavior. As I said earlier, I don't think it's the smartest thing to be at a bar at 2:00 a.m. But that still doesn't make him guilty of hitting someone and spitting on him.

Forgive me IrishDaddy for not proofing better. NO I DON'T WORK FOR KU but if I did I would tell the coaches to get their players under control but if someone messes with you or your friend then don't back down. I have seen enough bad behavior by bouncers over the years and know that most of them are on power trips. If T-Rob had hit the bouncer, he would be in the hospital not running his mouth. BTW, why are you here.

0

johninkc1 3 years ago

My best guess is the bouncer is the one who was out of control. Thomas is a fine young man and if he defended his friend or himself then good for him. I would hope my friends would do the same for me. Innocent until proven guilty or is it prove yourself innocent while everyone assumes your guilty these days.

those wearing the crimson glasses will continue to pooh pooh these incidents, but those without the glasses see it this way..... from ESPN

KU's bad behavior beginning to add up April, 19, 2011 Apr 193:15PM ETEmail Print Comments25 By Eamonn BrennanThe Kansas Jayhawks are making unfortunate offseasons a habit. In 2009, players on the school's football and basketball teams got into a brawl, resulting in an on-campus investigation and an injury to hoopster Tyshawn Taylor. In 2010, Jayhawks brass were investigated for a massive basketball ticketing scandal.

The trend continues in 2011, this time thanks to Kansas sophomore forward Thomas Robinson. According to the Lawrence Journal-World, Robinson was cited to appear in municipal court by Lawrence police on a misdemeanor battery charge stemming from an April 10 incident outside a nightclub called The Cave.

According to the report, a 2 a.m. fight in the club -- one wonders if there are lots of fights in The Cave, because it sounds like the kind of place that sees a lot of fights -- spilled outside, at which point a bouncer reported being spit on and struck. According to one bouncer's account to the Journal-World, several Kansas basketball players were at the bar, Robinson among them. After a "person accompanying the players" got angry at the bouncers, things escalated, at which point Robinson reportedly threw the offending punch and accompanying saliva projectile.

This sounds like a minor incident, one of those unfortunate bar-close scuffles that happens when people drink too much and get too aggressive with the large men in charge of keeping the drunken animals at bay. If you spend any time in bars, you've probably seen this sort of thing go down. (Though you've probably never been so unwise as to punch a bouncer. Let's hope not, anyway.)

Unfortunately, there's another issue here. Robinson was born on March 18, 1991. According to its unnecessarily loud, Flash-based site, The Cave is a 21 and over establishment. Fight or not, Robinson probably shouldn't have been in the bar in the first place.

In a vacuum, this is no big deal. Thing is, it didn't happen in a vacuum. It happened at Kansas. Assuming Robinson hasn't been falsely cited, his actions join the suddenly long list of recent issues with Kansas athletes, basketball players in particular. The football fight. Tyshawn Taylor's Facebook ban. Brady Morningstar's DUI. Markieff Morris's infamous dorm BB gun incident. Mario Little's arrest.

These things add up. How long until the sum of those parts -- whether fairly or unfairly -- seriously damages KU coach Bill Self's reputation?

That's a difficult calculus to figure, so instead let's just provide some free, easy advice to the student-athletes of America. Guys, don't get in fights with bouncers. Don't anger Division-I football players. You'd think this stuff would be self-evident, but, you know, apparently not

Agree with tauck and his 4:03 P.M. post. I'll admit I am biased (and with good reason after living back East for 15 years), but Self needs to back off of recruiting kids from urban cities in the East. Owens, Brown and Williams recruited more heavily on the West and Midwest and seemed to avoid most of the disciplinary problems that seem to afflict KU lately. Maybe I'm crazy, but!

One thing that most folks don't appreciate is just how much these athletes become targets, especially at a bar. A local thug gets liquored up, decides a famous athlete is hitting on his girlfriend, and sets out to prove something. Or some muscle-head barfly decides his best shot at fame is to take out a bad-axx football player. Or a bouncer on a power trip decides to prove how bad he is by pushing around the toughest guy on the Basketball team. You combine idiots like that with athletes who are taught to defend themselves and their team-mates, and it's amazing this doesn't happen more often. The athletes have to avoid these situations because the idiots will always be out there waiting, especially at 2am. It's unfair, but that's reality when your in the spotlight. So while I suspect T-Rob was only doing what any other person would do in that situation, he shouldn't have put himself in the situation in the first place.

Exactly the type of story and incident to bring out the quick-to-assume, and the quick-to-judge, oh--lets not forget the quick-to-make-'thug'-references... No one ever puts any faith or stock into the known personality of the player in question? We all saw Thomas on the ground in the Cal game, getting Gutierrez's elbow ground into his throat--how he kept his composure is beyond me, but it does speak very well for him.


I wish people would give their quick-to-judge little brains at least one iota of fact, or at least the benefit of time to see what fuller set of facts surface. Didnt the story say, after being told to x number of different people to end up in the LJW--that Thomas was trying to 'pull' people apart? That fact came through foremost...Who stands up for our guys? And specifically for guys like Thomas Robinson? Its negative comments directed at him that have me the maddest. The other 'thug' comments--well, "you" people are simply going to believe what you pathetic people believe, and yes, that clearly means you are racist. Now try backing away from your insinuation above...hmm?

Its comments just like under this story that keep proving (sadly) that Jayhawk fans are a wide cross-section of whatever parameter you want to use...Im not saying we all have to agree on anything or everything, but I would love to see certain commenters eat crow. While I love my alma mater, team, coach, I will absolutely not accept all of the so-called "fans" when they make the insinuations without facts as above. This has nothing to do with "blind loyalty"--contrary, I want more thoughtful, intelligent discourse amongst us "ku people". Way too much to ask, though, I keep finding out...

Nobody is suggesting any "sweeping under rug" when we dont have any facts. If its an egregious situation (like Giddens+weapons, or CJ Giles beating up his girlfriend), then the appropriate action will happen. Too many watchdogs for it not to happen.

Oh, ya, lets not forget the quick-to-judge-Self-while-we-are-a-judgin'...

Another case of the small sheep-brains having little faith, as usual. Jayhawk "faithful" (my azz...).

Slowly but surely, we are turning into a thug-like program like everyone else. One thing you could always look to from KU was a classy, classy basketball program. Starting with Ted Owens then Larry Brown and finally Roy Williams, the basketball was always top notch and the behavior was always mature and classy. We are slowly starting to lose those attributes both on and off the court. No offense, but it is starting to get embarrassing and it starts at the top. The contol has been lost, not totally at all, but the cracks are starting to show.

I nominate xclusive for the best post on this thread.

The whole thing sounds incredibly fishy to me, given how out of character it would seem to be for TRob (based on my admittedly extremely limited knowledge of his personality) and the fact that they already state he first got involved by trying to pull his friend away. And xclusive is on the money with his comment: if TRob had really hit someone, they would not have been reporting "no injuries."

bless TRob's heart for all that he's been through this year....but this is not good. these incidents simply MUST stop. from a police blotter standpoint alone, our mens basketball team, has to easily have the highest pct. of these incidents, of all the varsity sports teams at KU.

after 2:00 a.m.? the old saying definitely does apply....nothing good happens in public after midnight...let alone 2 a.m. just simply walk away....he's 6-8...and 240 lbs....he sticks out like a sore thumb....if he goes after somebody, they're going to remember it, and, witnesses will remember.

i hope for his sake, legally, there is something to be said here so he doesn't convicted of a serious crime. but basketball wise, he needs to get punished hard. of course, it won't happen until Oct. 15, but still....HCBS needs to say to him...."you'll find out Oct. 15 what the punishment will be." He'll have to think about it all summer.

and you know what? if there is a case for a crime here...maybe he should get convicted....would truly send a message. because right now, very few are listening.

So, it seems a lot of people are more than happy to take this bouncer at his word, and in my experience with bouncers, that could be a mistake.

Full disclosure: I have never personally been involved in a scuffle with a bouncer, nor have any of my friends or immediate party when out at a bar. HOWEVER, I have seen many, many an instance of bouncers having too much of a sense of their own power and let it go to their heads. This sometimes is shown by being a little too rough with patrons, and I've also seen bouncers lie on behalf of their fellow bouncers when things do get a little to rough for appropriateness. And I know that bouncers will give a version of events to cops that paints them in a better light, knowing that their word will be trusted over the words of some club patrons.

Robinson shouldn't be putting himself in situations where this can happen, given how high profile he is, but I'm going to have to take Mr. Lauridsen's account of events with a grain of sea salt. I can't fathom a stand-up guy like Robinson actually spitting on someone, even out of anger.

One plausible scenario--a scuffle started between Robinson's friend and the bouncer in question, and Robinson tried to break it up, but the bouncer, more concerned with the disrespect that had already been shown to him by the friend, was bound and determined to exert his authority. I've seen too many instances of similar events happening to assume that Robinson had a completely out-of-character moment based on the account of one bouncer, who has an incentive to lie for his fellow bouncer.

Nothing says TRob was IN the bar. It says he was outside of the bar. It also says he was trying to pull his friend off of someone. None of us were there. Who knows what happened when fists were flying. If notabandwagonfan is right and the bouncers are jerks, TRob is the perfect fall guy. Why not blame another Jayhawk? Granted, TRob should not have been out at 2am in front of a bar, but until it all comes out, we need to give him a break. Listen to IgnorantYokel TRob, and be careful who you hang out with.
