GOSHEN — Former NBA player Donte Greene was arrested in Elkhart County after police say he tried to rob a gas station clerk in Goshen last week.

Greene — who played for four seasons in the NBA and the NBA’s Development League from 2008-2012 — is charged with attempted robbery in connection to the incident in which officials allege he “lunged” at a convenience store clerk.

In charging documents filed last week, Goshen police allege officers were dispatched to a store on Lincolnway East shortly after midnight in the early morning of Nov. 8 for reports of a drunk driver in the area. While searching for the car, dispatchers informed officers there was a 911 call saying the Phillips 66 gas station in the area was being robbed.

Police went into the store and arrested a man, later identified as Greene, before talking to the cashier working in the store that night.

Court documents say that the clerk told officers Greene entered the store and told the man to “give him all the money” before making threatening movements toward the cashier. The worker had pulled out his phone and tried to call 911, but Greene told him not to call the police, the documents say. In fact, workers at a Taco Bell connected to the Phillips station were the ones who called 911 after witnessing Greene’s entrance into the store.
