On Friday, February 23rd, 2018 a graduate of the DeMatha Football team, Edward Robinson was under arrest. The former football player who goes by Robbie was a Met honorable mention back in the day. However, the young man was making threats on his social media account. He was claiming he had plans to shoot people at the Arizona State Athletic Facilities.
Emergency alerts soon went up after the young football player shared it on Twitter. This is right after the high school shooting in Florida. Edward Robinson was talking online all about purchasing a handgun and then shooting people at the stadium.
A spokesman at Arizona State University Bret Hovell says thankfully the system worked and sent out the proper emergency alerts. However, Edward Robinson was apparently battling some anger issues and publicly shared it online on his social media accounts.

Apart from the anger issues, he was arguing with some of his teammates over social media. His teammates kept encouraging Robinson to get some help with his problems. The former football player is only twenty years old. Edward Robinson was later arrested off the Arizona State University campus around 8 pm. It was the same day of the online threats about shooting up the school.
It’s looking as though Robinson will now have several felonies. They include possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia possession, and interfering with an educational institution. The local law authorities say the former all start football player Edward Robinson could be facing up to two years in state prison. Also, records of the incident can be seen on via Maricopa County Superior Court. He has a court date to appear at the Maricopa County Superior Court on March 2nd, 2018. The bond for Edward Robinson is fifty thousand dollars for making terrorist threats at Arizona State University.
