Josh Robinson created quite a stir on social media Tuesday evening.

The former Mississippi State running back was issued a citation by campus police for trespassing at the Seal Football Complex around 9:10 p.m.

Robinson immediately took to Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter claiming it was MSU football coach Dan Mullen who had called the authorities on him.

As it turns out however, that was not the case.

“Last night at 9:10 p.m., a member of our track staff saw a car parked on the track and called campus police to report it,” MSU spokesman Bill Martin wrote in a release. “The police came and issued a citation to someone who turned out to be Josh Robinson. Former student-athletes often use our facilities as they prepare for pro opportunities, but typically coordinate that use with department staff to prevent these type of situations.”

It is the second incident Robinson has had with the law in recent weeks. He was charged with disorderly conduct and arrested at Aspen Heights Apartments in Starkville on July 23.

Robinson lettered for the Bulldogs from 2012-14 but declared for the NFL following his junior year. Indianapolis drafted Robinson in the sixth round but waived him after appearing in only five games. He finished the year on the Colts’ practice squad and is currently a free agent.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
