BRINKLEY, AR - Former congressman Tommy Robinson is in the Brinkley jail serving a five-day jail sentence.  Robinson was convicted on misdemeanor charges stemming from an altercation with a creditor who was among those who forced Robinson and his wife into involuntary bankruptcy.

Robinson and a son, Greg Robinson, entered no-contest pleas July 20 to charges of accusing them of attacking Bill Thompson of Cabot July 11 at Gene's barbecue restaurant in Brinkley.  District Judge J.W. Green found the two guilty.  Greg Robinson has served his jail time.

Tommy Robinson represented the Second District in central Arkansas when he was in Congress.  He also was the sheriff of Pulaski County.
