Atlanta United & USMNT’s Miles Robinson arrested on misdemeanor theft charge

Atlanta United and United States defender Miles Robinson was arrested on Saturday night, according to reports and records.

According to Cobb County Sherriff’s Office records, the 25-year-old was charged with misdemeanor theft by taking, with the arrest taking place at 825 Battery Avenue in Atlanta just before 11pm. Robinson was released after posting a $150 bond on Sunday afternoon.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (AJC) report that Robinson took a shot of liquor from a waitress at PBR Atlanta but declined to pay for it.

In a statement to the AJC, Atlanta United said: “We are aware of a recent misdemeanor arrest involving Miles Robinson. We are continuing to gather all information related to the incident and will not have further comment at this time.”

Robinson suffered a torn Achilles injury in May and has been sidelined since. The center-back will miss the remainder of the 2022 MLS season, meaning he’s almost certain to miss out on the USMNT’s World Cup roster later this year.
