A former Oakland Raiders offensive lineman faces battery charges in Boca Raton after police said he repeatedly hit two women at a hotel on Monday.

Barret Robbins, 42, of Delray Beach is charged with punching two women multiple times with a closed fist at a Best Western hotel located at 2700 North Federal Hwy.


The women said Robbins did not make any statements during the incident, and he "randomly approached them and began hitting them" while they were standing outside of the hotel lobby.

The manager of the Best Western said he witnessed the entire incident and saw Robbins, who was staying as a guest, approach and punch the women.  They were treated at the scene for their injuries.

Robbins, who is 6 foot 3 inches and weighs more than 300 pounds, was previously convicted in 2006 of battery. 

He played for the Raiders for nine seasons, including making the Pro Bowl in 2002.

Robbins made national headlines after he went missing the day before the Super Bowl in 2003.  He was later found but did not play in the Raiders' loss to the Buccaneers.
