Suspended center faces 4 charges

The Tigers have been on another losing streak, with the loss of Chubb

Auburn University basketball player Robert Chubb, who was suspended from the team last week, was arrested by Auburn city police Jan. 30 and faces four charges.

Chubb, 20, has been charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, attempting to elude a police officer and resisting arrest. According to police, Chubb faces an April 7 date in Auburn Municipal Court.

He was arrested at 1:47 a.m. Jan. 30 at Genelda Avenue at Thomas Street, according to a police report.

Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said Chubb was released later that day on $1,800 bond — $500 each for disorderly conduct, attempting to elude an office and resisting arrest, and $300 for public intoxication.

Minor injuries were sustained to Chubb and the arresting officer, according to the police report.

Chubb, a 6-foot-10 sophomore center from Peachtree City, Ga., averaged 8.1 points and 4.1 rebounds in the Tigers’ first 21 games.

He scored a career-high 18 points against South Carolina in Columbia, S.C., the afternoon before his arrest.

Chubb had been suspended indefinitely from all team activities for an unspecified violation of team rules before Thursday’s loss to Tennessee.

“Disappointed in Rob,” Barbee said after the game. “He’s suspended from all team activities. That’s all the detail I’m going into.“

Barbee echoed those sentiments during Monday’s SEC coaches teleconference, saying, “He’s still suspended at this point. He’s suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules and he’s still suspended from all activities at this point.“

Attempts to reach Chubb for comment Monday have been unsuccessful.
