Former student acquitted of gun charge

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) - 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.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reported that 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.
