Former Oakland Raiders center Barret Robbins, who is remembered for deserting his team the night before Super Bowl, was released from a Florida jail on Tuesday after being sentenced to prison after a police-involved shooting seven years ago, reports CBS4, a Miami television station.

Robbins was released Tuesday morning from the Dade Correctional Institute after spending the past year and a half there.  Robbins was sentenced to serve five years in prison after a run-in with Miami Beach police on January 15, 2005. Robbins was charged with three counts of attempted murder after attacking three police officers.

Robbins was asked if he could stay off alcohol and drugs now that he is out of prison. “I’m not worried about that and that’s not anybody’s business but mine. That’s something I’ll deal with myself," he said.

Then he became angry and started yelling at a camera.

“You know what, cancel this, erase this. Erase what you got, I don’t want any part of this s**t,” Robbins said.
