Former San Antonio Spurs player Robertson arrested

SAN ANTONIO (AP) Authorities say former San Antonio Spurs player Alvin Robertson has been arrested after cutting off a GPS monitor while out on bond in a 2009 case.

The Bexar County Sheriff's Office says 52-year-old Robertson was arrested Monday afternoon at a San Antonio apartment complex. Officials say he'd been on the run since Jan. 5.

Sheriff's officials say Robertson, a former NBA All-Star whose career ended in 1996, was out on bond in a 2009 case in which he was initially charged with trafficking of a person less than 18 for prostitution. He'd been released from jail Dec. 12 and was required to wear the monitor.

Robertson's attorney, Brent de la Paz, says his client, who proclaims his innocence, is frustrated with delays in the case.
