When approached by law enforcement, Robinson fled. According to police, he was not compliant with officers once he was apprehended. After his arrest he was released for medical reasons.

Two days later, police responded to a call of a suspicious vehicle on Peine Road. Robinson, who was a passenger in the vehicle, fled through nearby woods on foot. He was eventually apprehended on Highway 61.
