The incident, according to arrest affidavits

When police tried to stop a red Chevrolet Impala with no license plates, the vehicle turned north on Eastern Avenue and accelerated from police, arrest affidavits say..

After eluding police, Robinson crashed his vehicle and ran on foot from the vehicle. Officers ordered him to stop running and to show his hands. He refused. After a short foot pursuit he was caught and continued to resist officers, affidavits say.

Robinson had about 5 grams of raw marijuana. He admitted to officers he had marijuana on his person. After he was captured, he refused to provide his name and date of birth to officers, affidavits say .

Police say Robinson ran red lights at Welcome Way/Kimberly Road, Brady Street/Kimberly Road, and East Kimberly Road/Eastern Avenue. He also struck a “road closed” sign and drove into the construction area, affidavits say.

He has no insurance and his license is suspended, affidavits say.

Robinson accelerated to speeds of 90 miles per hour. After crashing his vehicle in a raised cement curb and disabling the vehicle, he fled on foot and was captured by police, affidavits say.

“It should be noted the defendant has made several statements he just needs a bond amount so he can get out of jail and do this again,” arrest affidavits say.

Robinson was released on bond from Scott County Jail later Monday. His preliminary hearing is set for June 9, court records say.
