43-year-old Jimmy Robinson Jr. was arrested last week and charged with aggravated assault. Mt. Juliet police Lt. Tyler Chandler says authorities responding to a report of an armed man Thursday night determined that the former linebacker had hunted down the teens and held them at gunpoint.
Police say Robinson drove around searching for the car carrying the five teens and then ordered two of them out of their vehicle at gunpoint. It’s unclear who called authorities and how the confrontation ended.
Robinson is an EMT with the Nashville Fire Department, which is conducting an internal investigation. He has posted bail and been released from custody.
