Video Released of Jags RB Denard Robinson Driving Into a Pond (Video)
Earlier this month, former Michigan star quarterback and current Jacksonville Jaguars running back Denard Robinson found himself inside his Chevy Impala while it was sinking head-first in a retention pond. He and his passenger were sound asleep and dismissing officers’ commands to get out, completely unaware of the danger they were in.
Denard claims he was just fatigued, and officers state he was asked many times to exit the vehicle but Robinson went back to sleep shortly after.
“The driver (Denard Robinson) opened his eyes and then went back to sleep. I continued to knock on the window until the passenger Marissa Staples woke up and rolled the window down and said “what’s up”. I explained that their vehicle was in a pond and that they needed to exit the vehicle. The passenger attempted to roll the window back up. I was able to reach in the vehicle and unlock the door so I could help the occupants exit the vehicle. The passenger refused to exit the vehicle and had to be pulled out of the car. The driver was passed out during this whole process. I was able to wake the driver but had to turn the vehicle off and remove his seatbelt. The driver thought he was on a road and did not want to exit the vehicle. I had to tell the driver multiple times his car was in a pond and was sinking so he needed to hurry up and get out. The driver tried about three times to open the driver’s door which was the side that was under water. I had to keep reminding the driver to climb out of the passenger side because his door was in the water.”
