NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Police have charged former Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck with felony robbery after a cab driver accused him of taking money during an argument.
"I was out with friends last night in Nashville and was taking a cab home," Bulluck said in a statement to The Tennessean. "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."
A police statement says the driver was waiting outside a bar for a paid fare early Sunday when Bulluck approached him asking for a ride. According to police, the driver said he declined and Bulluck grabbed him by his shirt, took a $100 bill and fled.
When officers arrived, the cab driver identified Bulluck as the suspect, and he was arrested.
Bulluck retired from football in 2012 after playing 11 seasons in the NFL, 10 of them with the Titans.
