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.

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.

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.

Green was arrested on July 10th after allegedly attacking 22-year-old Jermaine Edmondson -- a senior cornerback on the MSU football team. He's 6'0", 185 lbs. Draymond is 6'7", 240 lbs.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ Sports, at least two officers witnessed Green slapping Edmondson across the face outside of Conrad's bar in East Lansing, Michigan in the early hours of July 10th. One officer said, "The sound of the slap was very loud."

Edmondson told police he was hanging out with his girlfriend when Green bumped into him. Edmondson says he told Green, "Hey bro, you can at least say 'Excuse me.'"

Green allegedly responded by saying, "Do you know who I am?" ... and added, "I pay for n**gas like you scholarships."

Edmondson says 2 of Green's associates then began to choke him out right in the bar. He later noticed that Green's associates choked his girlfriend as well. 

Edmondson says he and his GF left the bar without contacting police -- and returned to the bar scene the next day to celebrate his birthday. 

That's when he ran into Green again -- and was confronted by the NBA star. Edmondson says he told Green that "last night wasn't cool" and Green started to poke him in the shoulder. 

Edmondson says he told Green to take his hands off him -- and that's when "boom I'm punched in my jaw."

Edmondson says he did not fight back -- and responding cops did not witness any retaliation.

Cops responded and he told officers his neck and face hurt and he did want to take further action against Green.

Cops arrested Green -- and say he was drunk ... with a .10 blood alcohol level. 

During the arrest, cops say Green ADMITTED to slapping Edmondson -- and said "he was sorry" and "wanted to speak with him to make things right."

As for Green -- he issued a statement to reporters Wednesday morning saying, "My legal team is handling it. It will be resolved really quickly."

The Band Perry Alleged 'Terroristic Threat' Suspect Pilot with Anger Management Issues

Exclusive Details

0705-dzmitry-papou-mug-shot-01

One of the suspects who allegedly threatened violence at a concert featuring The Band Perry is a pilot.

Dzmitry Papou was arrested for making terroristic threats at the Delaware venue where the band was set to perform Sunday night. Cops say Dzmitry and another man made a threat of violence. The band and cops decided it was best to postpone the concert.

We did some digging, and found Papou has a private pilot license, which he got after completing an anger management course. We've spoken with flight schools and the FAA, and there's no general requirement for an anger management course as a condition to getting a pilot's license.

It's unclear why Papou was required to take such a course, however, an FAA rep tells us an anger management course could be required if there's a history of psychiatric problems.
