Rainbows RobinsonBy Pat Bigold
Geremy Robinson, a junior guard-forward for the University of Hawaii men's basketball team, remained in a Honolulu Police Department cellblock on Beretania Street this morning after his arrest yesterday for alleged kidnapping and abuse.
He is being held pending a police investigation into an incident that sources said occurred late Wednesday night and early yesterday morning at the Pearl City home of his girlfriend.
Robinson, 21, of Baton Rouge, La., was taken into custody at 4:40 a.m. after a call about a disturbance.
Charges have not been filed, but Robinson can be held up to 48 hours without charges during the investigation.
Regarded as one of the team's crowd favorites during the past two seasons, Robinson won the Ah Chew Goo Most Inspirational Player award at the recent postseason basketball banquet.
He was named the United Airlines Tip-Off Tournament Most Outstanding Player last November for his performances against VMI and William & Mary.
The 6-foot-4, 193-pound Robinson played as a key reserve, averaging 17 minutes and 7.5 points per game.
According to campus sources, he had never before been in trouble during his time as a scholarship player.
