— Former North Carolina State wide receiver Koren Robinson, who plays for the NFL's Seattle Seahawks, was arrested Saturday during an incident at a nightclub in Durham.

The 22-year-old Robinson was charged with failure to disperse, a disorderly-conduct offense. He was released on his own recognizance on a $1,000 unsecured bond.

Robinson, who lists an address in Cary as his residence, is scheduled to make his first appearance in Durham County District Court on Feb. 17.

According to police, Robinson was among a group of people that became unruly after being turned away from a nightclub called The Edge. Police said they were at the club between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. to help control the area and assist with security after the club had reached its fire-occupancy limit.
