(NASHVILLE, TN) — Former Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck was arrested on a felony robbery charge after a cab driver accused him of stealing money during an argument.
According to a statement released by the Nashville Police Department, 36-year-old Bulluck approached the cab driver outside a bar early Sunday morning. Police said that after an altercation with the driver, Bulluck took a $100 dollar bill and fled.
Bulluck was later arrested, booked into jail, and released on a $10,000 bond.
The 2003 Pro Bowler is due in court on September 26.
“I was out with friends last night in Nashville and was taking a cab home,” Bulluck said in a statement. “There was a misunderstanding between me and the cab driver about getting my money back for a service not rendered. At 2 a.m., things could easily get lost in translation, but regardless of who was right or wrong, I regret putting myself in that situation.”
He retired from the NFL in 2012 after 10 seasons with the Titans and one with the New York Giants.
