Miles Robinson, a centerback for Atlanta United and the United States men’s national team, was taken into custody on Saturday by the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office on suspicion of misdemeanour theft by taking, according to the arrest records.
According to jail records, Robinson, 25, was taken into custody at 825 Battery Avenue in Atlanta just before midnight on Saturday. On Sunday afternoon, he was released after posting a $150 bond.
Robinson allegedly got a shot of alcohol from a server at PBR Atlanta in The Battery neighbourhood outside of Truist Park and then refused to pay for it, according to Doug Roberson of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“We are aware that Miles Robinson was just arrested for a misdemeanour.
Atlanta United issued a statement to the AJC stating that they were “continuing to gather all information pertaining to the incident and will not have additional comment at this time.”
Robinson hasn’t played since May, when the team announced that he had torn his Achilles.
He won’t be able to participate in the World Cup in Qatar later this year and will be sidelined for the remainder of the MLS season.
