On Wednesday afternoon, news broke of the arrest and subsequent suspension of Austin Peay guard Josh Robinson.

According to the story posted by the Leaf-Chronicle:

Robinson was arrested on Tuesday, March 7, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department booking log. He was charged with manufacture, delivery of a Schedule VI drug (marijuana) and a simple possession charge for marijuana.

A drugs Schedule VI charge for marijuana, according to Tennessee State drug laws, is a felony charge. Classification of the charge varies on the amount of marijuana involved.

Robinson, a junior and the Governors’ leading scorer, was named to this season’s All-OVC First Team for the second straight year after putting up over 20 points per game for his team. He is one of the most-utilized players by his team in the country, and if his current indefinite suspension remains that way, his absence will be sorely felt by this team.

Austin Peay finished the year with a record of 11-19, but their 7-9 record in the OVC was not enough to earn a bid in the conference tournament.
