More problems for ex-Oakland Raiders center Barret Robbins -- the troubled 42-year-old was arrested outside of a bar in Boca Raton, Florida after allegedly getting violent with several people.

TMZ Sports has learned ... Robbins was taken into custody around 12:30 AM on Tuesday -- after witnesses say he attacked a person inside of a bar, struck another person outside the bar ... and then roughed up a mother and her daughter after that. 

One witness says after the incident, Robbins sat down at the scene and waited for cops to arrive. 

He was eventually arrested on 2 counts of felony battery. But instead of locking him up in jail, Barret was transported to a nearby mental health facility.

According to court documents, Barret is unable to pay for his own lawyer -- so he was appointed a public defender. 

Barret famously disappeared before the Raiders took on the Bucs in Super Bowl XXXVII in 2003 -- and it was later determined that he was bipolar and had gone into a manic episode. 

After his football career ended, Robbins was arrested several times for violent crimes -- including attacking a security guard and brawling with police in Miami Beach.

WNBA's Glory Johnson Arrest Warrant Issued Blew Off Dom. Violence Program

8/6/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0805-glory-johnson-USA-TODAY-SPORTS-01Glory Johnson is a wanted woman ... a warrant was issued for the WNBA star's arrest after officials say she did NOT complete a court ordered domestic violence program, TMZ Sports has learned.

It all stems from the violent altercation with her ex-wife, Brittney Griner, back in 2015. Both Johnson and Griner were arrested for attacking each other in their AZ home.

Part of Johnson's sentence was to complete a 6 month domestic violence program by Sept. 25th -- or else she could face up to 6 months in jail.

But according to court documents obtained by TMZ Sports, Johnson didn't keep up her end of the bargain -- and as of May 2016, hadn't attended a single session.

Do the math ... impossible to complete a 6 month session in 4 months ... so a warrant was issued for failure to comply. Court records show the warrant is still active.

For her part, Johnson has been incredibly busy ... she gave birth to premature twins back in October and has been raising them by herself. She also divorced Griner and went back to work in the WNBA.

A rep for Johnson insisted "Glory's doing everything the court ordered her to do," ... telling us the warrant is a result of "a paperwork issue that we had assumed her attorney handled."

As for the complete sobriety -- the judge will be very happy to hear that ... since he asked her to abstain from booze while she's in her 1 year court-ordered diversion program.

Bottom line -- props to Wambach ... who still seems dedicated to live up to her promise.

EXCLUSIVE

0801-tre-mason-gettyTMZ Sports has obtained the police report from Tre Mason's encounter with police on July 23rd -- which details strange behavior, a violent outburst and more evidence of mental illness. 

We broke the story ... cops in Palm Beach, FL had visited the NFL running back 5 times in 4 months after his family reported a string of bizarre behavior, concerned about his mental health. 

Now we know more from the July 23rd incident -- and it's clear he's not in good shape. 

According to the report, filed by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office ... cops say Tre's mother had called because her son was "acting unusual and making irrational statements."

When Tre saw the cops, he threatened to call the White House and have them all fired -- and made bizarre statements about Al Qaeda ... so says the report.

Upon inspection, cops noticed a hole that had been punched in the wall of Tre's bedroom and a broken vase and lamp. Tre also had a cut on his hand, but was refusing medical attention. 

The officer who filed the report made it clear Tre was in no position to make decisions on his own. 

"I believe that Trence does not have the [redacted] ability to make decisions at this time and therefore he was transported to [redacted] where he was treated for the laceration and admitted for evaluation under the [redacted]."

Mason was a no-show at L.A. Rams training camp -- and head coach Jeff Fisher says the running back hasn't spoken with anyone in the organization since 2015. 

It now seems pretty clear why ...
