Only hours after the best game of his career, Auburn basketball center Rob Chubb was arrested near downtown on four misdemeanor charges Jan. 30.
Chubb, 20, was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, attempting to elude a police officer and resisting arrest.
He was transported to Lee County Detention Center and released later that day on $1,800 bond, Lee County Sheriff Jay Jones said. Chubb is scheduled to appear in Auburn Municipal Court on April 7.
Head coach Tony Barbee suspended the 6-foot-10, 222-pound sophomore indefinitely prior to the Tennessee game last Thursday. Chubb, who has missed the last two games, is not allowed to participate in any team activities.
Never miss a local story.
Chubb was arrested at 1:47 a.m. on Jan. 30 at the corner of Genelda Ave. and Thomas St. after police were called to the scene. Chubb was drunk, according to a copy of an arrest report obtained by the Ledger-Enquirer on Monday, and attempted to elude a police officer.
Police say he also resisted arrest. Injuries were reported for both he and an officer. The report said Chubb was not armed.
The Peachtree City, Ga., native was one of the Tigers' few low-post options, averaging 8.1 points and 4.1 rebounds in 21 games this season, including 16 starts.
He scored a career-high 18 points at South Carolina the afternoon before his arrest in what was the Tigers' only SEC win this season.
"I'm disappointed in Rob," Barbee said at the time of the suspension. "We were starting to gain a nice rhythm with Rob, and he was starting to gain an offensive threat. Not having that was a big one. Whoever plays in his place has to step up to the opportunity."
Junior Adrian Forbes and sophomore Ty Armstrong have played more in Chubb's absence. The duo has averaged 6.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in games against Tennessee and Georgia.
Auburn (8-15, 1-8 SEC) is off until Saturday, when it hosts Mississippi State at 7 p.m. ET.
