Erique Robertson, Illinois weak-side linebacker, has been charged with three felonies in connection with an incident near the astonishingly spelled "E'llusions" nightclub in Champaign, illinois.

Freshman football player Erique Robertson pleaded not guilty to three class-four felonies Monday, one day after head coach Ron Zook suspended him indefinitely. The 19-year-old linebacker is charged with reckless discharge of a firearm and two counts of aggravated unlawful use of weapons.

According to a Champaign Police report, Robertson was also charged at the scene with not having the proper identification for a firearm and obstructing justice.

If the charges hold, that's three points a felony charge plus the misdemeanor points...all tallying up a whopping 11 points for the Illini, who if you'll recall leaped to a sizeable lead last year with the breakup of a burglary ring involving two players. This eleven point total would ensconce the Illini in the catbird seat with a one-point lead over Missouri, and also puts Erique Robertson in the running for the Ellis T. Jones III Award for individual achievement.

Remember: when [NAME REDACTED] talks about the need for proper gun handling, he's not talking about firearms man.

Guns, baby.
