Former Arizona State cornerback Robbie Robinson has been jailed after making threats of violence on social media.

According to ESPN, Robinson, 20, was charged with making “terroristic threats” after he tweeted that he wanted to “spray the stadium up.” He was also charged with disruption of an educational institution, and possession of marijuana.

"Give me 25. Give me life," Robinson posted. "Give me liberty or give me death. [I don't care]. I'm not staying quiet. I'm hurt."

The threats were made around noon on Friday, and Robinson was arrested at approximately 8 p.m. that night. As of Sunday afternoon, Robinson was still in custody at Maricopa County Jail and is being held on $50,000 bond.

Robinson also posted a purported text exchange with an ASU police officer, as well as claims that Arizona State fans were racist.

Robinson played in 10 games with ASU as a freshman in 2016. He later left the team, claiming he was going to transfer. He has not been enrolled at ASU for more than a year.
