PULLMAN, Wash. -- A former Washington State University student has been acquitted of unlawful display of a firearm and unlawful aiming of a firearm.
Ronald L. Robinson was acquitted Monday of charges stemming from a 2012 incident when members of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity said Robinson approached their house, made threats and pointed his gun at them.
Robinson was arrested and subsequently expelled from WSU.
Robinson contends he was outside the fraternity house and made a joke about letting a "Husky" into the house. He says the joke sparked a confrontation.
The 29-year-old Robinson, of Republic, Wash., testified Monday that he brandished the weapon after he was surrounded by members of the fraternity.
