One of his posts was talking about how he is an Indian and that this is his land and not America’s land. It was also reported that he had been driving while drinking. A man saw Robert walking away from his house, so he went back there and unloaded several of his guns. He didn’t get them all unarmed before Roberts showed back up and then he thought that he was intoxicated so he left the area for his own safety. The man felt like he should be worried about being there with him.
Francis James Robert’s aunt shared that they saw him driving drunk, but he refused to give them the keys and then he ended up pushing her. Roberts ended up getting arrested and is still in jail.
