A veteran NFL player is facing a multitude of charges this week. Robert Quinn is facing charges following an incident in Summerville earlier this week.
The NFL veteran is now facing multiple charges after neighbors reported several cars were damaged on Tuesday night after he hit them and left the scene.
Police say Quinn was driving his truck when he drove off of the roadway and struck several vehicles.

“Neighbors in the Carrington Chase community, off of Miles Jamison Road, reported they witnessed a driver, who has been identified as Quinn, hit four cars, a gate, and a light post.
Quinn later spoke to neighbors before speeding away.
“He was very belligerent,” Lisa Ball said. “He kept saying ‘oh don’t worry about it I’ll buy you new cars, I’ll buy you a new car, let’s go to the dealership,’ I told him to get off my property and he proceeded to put his hands on me and slap me not once but twice.”
Police say after the alleged assault, Quinn got back into his truck, hit another vehicle, then left the area on foot.
Quinn is charged with one count of 3rd-degree assault and battery, four counts of hit and run of an unattended vehicle, one count of hit and run of an attended vehicle, and one count of striking fixtures on or adjacent to the highway – failure to report.
Quinn turned himself in on Friday morning and later attended a bond hearing at Summerville Municipal Court. Quinn was given a $155 personal recognizance bond.
In total, Quinn is facing seven charges.
Quinn has been in trouble before as he was involved in a single-car crash in Missouri and charged with Driving While Intoxicated and driving without insurance in 2012. He plead guilty to Failure to Exercise a High Degree of Care in August of that year and paid a $277 fine.
After playing 7 years with the Rams in St. Louis and Los Angeles, Quinn would go on to play with the Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, and Chicago Bears before being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles midway through the 2022 season. Quinn would go on to play in his first Super Bowl after that season.
He is currently a free agent.
