Former NFL defensive end Robert Quinn was arrested on Friday morning in Summersville, South Carolina, following a reported assault and hit-and-run incident. Quinn turned himself in to authorities after being involved in a series of collisions on Tuesday night. The 33-year-old NFL free agent allegedly crashed into four cars, a community gate, and a light post before fleeing the scene on foot.
Witnesses in the Carrington Chase community, where the incident occurred, reported seeing the damage caused by Quinn. One witness, Lisa Ball, stated that Quinn was belligerent and offered to buy her a new car after hitting her vehicle. Ball claimed that Quinn then put his hands on her and slapped her twice before leaving the scene.
Authorities responded to the hit-and-run incidents on Tuesday night and discovered Quinn’s vehicle, along with a partially empty bottle of Crown Royal Apple whiskey in the passenger side. Quinn turned himself in on Friday and attended a bond hearing at Summerville Municipal Court. He was granted bonds for various charges, including third-degree assault and battery, hit-and-run with property damage, and leaving the scene after a traffic incident.
It is worth noting that Quinn has a previous history of involvement in a 2012 crash in Missouri, where he was charged with driving while intoxicated. He pleaded guilty to failure to exercise a high degree of care and paid a fine of $277.
