2nd University of South Florida player accused of firing gun
TAMPA, Fla. — A second University of South Florida football player is now accused of firing a gun on campus.
University police arrested junior cornerback Lamar Robbins on Thursday afternoon. He remained in the Hillsborough County Jail early Friday with an $8,000 bond.
Police say they arrested Robbins after an investigation into the Oct. 11 arrest of freshman reserve offensive lineman Benjamin Knox. Arrest reports say Knox fired a gun at a dorm on the campus near Tampa.
In a statement released Friday, university police say they spoke with Robbins early in the investigation and he gave false information.
Earlier this week, USF athletic department suspended Knox from team activities. They haven’t made an announcement on Robbins’ status.
Robbins is charged with discharging a weapon on campus, a second-degree felony, and giving false information to a law enforcement officer.
A lawyer for Robbins isn’t listed on jail records.
