Ex-Spur Alvin Robertson “Prepares To Surrender”

By Daniel Strickland on April 18, 2006.

There will be no Hall of Fame induction for former Spur Alvin Robertson, not ever. This despite the fact that he is one of only 4 players to record a quadruple-double. Too bad.

Since he first bounded onto the basketball court as a Spurs guard in 1984, Alvin Robertson rarely has allowed obstacles to impede him.

The ex-Spurs star with a troubled past has breached multiple barriers. One of the latest, authorities said, was a protective order.

Last week, officials issued a warrant for Robertson’s arrest in connection with a 2004 charge of violating a protective order that currently is pending in court. The warrant was issued because Robertson failed to maintain contact with the bail bond company handling his release, according to court documents.

Authorities had issued another arrest warrant in February in which Robertson, 43, is accused of driving with an invalid license and violating probation. He was due in court on Tuesday for a hearing, but failed to appear due to a miscommunication with his lawyer.

Robertson said over the phone Wednesday that he planned to turn himself in to authorities this morning.

“I’m doing the best I can to turn myself around,” he said. “It’s just tough.”

In 1996, Robertson was placed on probation after pleading no contest to charges of fondling one woman and biting another who tried to stop him.

That same year, Robertson was convicted of burglary stemming from previous charges of burglary of a habitation, resisting arrest and assault. In that case, a woman told police Robertson kicked down her door and ransacked her apartment after she had refused to talk to him on the phone.

In 1997, Robertson again was placed on probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges of vandalizing his ex-girlfriend’s BMW one week after a restraining order filed by the woman had expired.

In 2002, Robertson received a three-year prison term for violating his probation after being accused of sexual assault. He was released from prison in 2003.

Wednesday, the one-time Defensive Player of the Year and Spurs All-Star expressed regret for the less glamorous aspects of his past.

“The Spurs are great guys, and they don’t need to have my name mentioned with them in the same sentence,” he said. “The Spurs don’t need to have their name dragged like that.”

    Before we all judge someone, we need to judge ourselves. Only man that can judge another is GOD. Leave this man along and live your life.

    "Human Trafficking Case"
    I believe he is being set up by "this so called girl-friend of his". I've known alvin robertson all of my life, and some of the crap that I have been reading about him is not totally true.
    yours truly, a friend from home. We love you "Jap"

    I've known Alvin for about 11yrs and not one time has he ever been disrespectful of me, my body, my thoughts or feelings. There is two sides to every story and we only get to hear the one side. So keep that in mind as you judge him. I will not judge him by what the media prints, but by the man I know.

    If that 14 year old kidnap victim was your child how would you feel about the man?
