TOWN OF ELMA, N.Y. (WIVB)  Riverside High School graduate and former NBA player Clifford Robinson was arrested for drunk driving Sunday while trying to merge on to the 400.

State police said Robinson, 47, had his child in the car when he was stopped as part of a DWI crackdown after the Buffalo Bills game. He refused a breath test. Robinson had a suspended New York ID-only license and a suspended New Jersey driver’s license, according to state police.

Robinson was charged with Driving While Intoxicated, two counts of felony aggravated DWI with a child passenger in the vehicle, one misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child, second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and traffic violations.

Robinson was arraigned in the Town of Elma Court and was later released. He is due back in that same court at a later date.

Robinson attended the University of Connecticut. He played in the NBA from 1989 to 2007 for the Portland Trailblazers, Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors and the New Jersey Nets.

He appeared on the CBS reality show ‘Survivor’ earlier this year.
