Before fall camp started, Jovon Robinson, who was presumed to be the team’s starting running back, was dismissed from the team. The incident that led to his dismissal was a female accusing him of beating her up during an argument. The only problem? Robinson never did that, and he stood by his denial of the incidents despite being kicked off. Well, it turns out that the girl was lying.
The accuser, who is a student at Auburn, told AL.com she was coming forward to “clear the air” about what happened between her and Robinson, who she characterized as a friend.
“I was upset with him because he didn’t want me in his room,” the accuser told AL.com. “We were just arguing.”
As to the accusation of prior incidents with Robinson, the accuser told AL.com, “(I) never reported anything else to anyone. … It was all made up. Nothing happened.”
Yeah, some friend you are. A friend doesn’t email their friend’s head coach saying your head got bashed in and he shoved you out of the room and you got a knot in your eye. What should have tipped Gus off is the fact that in her email to him, she stated she wasn’t going to get the police involved despite this being the “second or third time this has happened with him.”
Innocent until proven guilty is officially gone, guys. It had a good run, but this guy’s reputation was tainted the moment she opened her mouth to lie about domestic abuse. Now he has to deal with people saying he paid her off to say that and he really is a domestic abuser. Not to mention she ruined his chance to be a contributor to Auburn, and maybe even his shot at the NFL. Irreparable damage has been done..
