Atlanta United and U.S. international defender Miles Robinson was arrested Saturday on one count of misdemeanor theft by taking, according to an incident report from the Cobb County Police Department.


In the report, it is alleged that Robinson refused to pay for a $5 shot that he had taken off of a drink tray. The bartender alerted management, who asked police to escort Robinson off the premises {snip}


The report reads: “Robinson stated, ‘You only want to listen to the racist bartender, you aren`t going to listen to me.’ I attempted to explain to Robinson that the bartender observed him take a shot and then walk away and alerted the managers. Robinson would not listen but stated that the situation was because he was the only black male inside of the bar.

“Detective Goduto then explained to him that all he had to do was pay his bill and that if he did not pay the bill the manager wanted to press charges for theft. {snip} Robinson did not indicate that he was going to pay the bill.”
