On Dec. 13, Robinson was similarly pulled over for a traffic violation on Peach Street near Bowen Street. It is alleged that he didn’t have a driver’s license and was reportedly in possession of crack cocaine and a large amount of cash.

He was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and several vehicle and traffic violations.
