In July 2013, he was relieved of duty for buying alcohol while riding in a marked police vehicle. He was off-duty at the time. Robinson was also off-duty this past Saturday, when his pick-up allegedly ran into a parked vehicle belonging to Manny Garcia. But after Garcia asked him to back up, Robinson allegedly drove forward by mistake, hitting the shopping cart in which Garcia’s two young daughters, Meah and Geah, were riding while backing away from Garcia’s car. The shopping cart fell to the floor, sending the girls spilling out. Neither child was seriously injured. ... When he [got] out of the pick-up truck, he wobbles [then] falls on the floor,” Garcia said of Robinson. “I could smell the alcohol on him.” From the Miami Herald, it seems that the officers at the scene tried to extend what is euphemistically known as a "professional courtesy" to the drunk-driving cop, corruption at its finest: Even when Miami-Dade Police officers arrived, [Manny] Garcia [father of the girls] said Robinson was not tested for alcohol for several hours. “The officers went and talked to [Robinson] for about 15 minutes and then came and asked me for my documents and registration,” García said. “I had to tell [them], ‘Look, I don’t think you understand what’s going on here — we are the victims.’” García said other witnesses offered to give their versions, but a female officer told him that his statement was sufficient. Shortly afterward, García said, an officer told him he could leave. “But I told him that I wouldn’t leave until I saw what happened with that man,” said Garcia. “Only then did I learn that he was a police officer. I think they tried to cover up the incident to protect one of their own instead of the real victims.” García called a lawyer, who advised him to demand that a lieutenant come to the scene. The arrest affidavit says an officer who arrived at 10:20 p.m. found Robinson without handcuffs, seated in the back of a patrol car. He was arrested after failing to pass a field sobriety test and refusing an alcohol breath test.
