Ex-NFL player charged with assaulting woman, daughter

BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) A former NFL player with a history of mental illness has been charged with assaulting a woman and her daughter outside a Florida hotel.

Palm Beach County court documents show that 42-year-old Barret Robbins is facing two felony battery counts. Authorities say Robbins allegedly approached the woman and her daughter randomly outside the hotel Monday and began punching them repeatedly. Robbins then sat down on a bench.

Robbins was an All-Pro center for the Oakland Raiders who missed the team's 2003 Super Bowl game after disappearing the day before. He was later diagnosed with bipolar disorder. In 2005, he was shot several times during a brawl with police in Miami Beach and pleaded guilty to five charges.

The court documents did not list an attorney for Robbins, who has a court hearing Friday.
