Former NFL linebacker Keith Bulluck, who played with the Tennessee Titans for 10 years, was arrested early Sunday morning for allegedly stealing $100 from a cab driver in Nashville.
Bulluck was part of the broadcast crew Tennessee’s preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night. Later, that evening, a cab driver was waiting for a paid fare outside of Blue Gene’s bar when he was approached for a ride by Bulluck, according to News Channel 5. After the driver said he had a fare, Bulluck allegedly became enraged, grabbed the driver, assaulted him and then stole $100 for the cab, according to WSMV TV.
Bulluck left the scene, but was later apprehended by police across the street. The driver wanted to prosecute, and Bulluck was charged with a class C felony robbery.
The former Titan was arrested and booked into jail around 4:30 a.m. When NewsChannel 5 reporter Deja Knight approached Bulluck after being released, he was not pleased.
"I've been here for 10 years and this is what you want to talk about?" said Bulluck.
According to the report, Bulluck may have been intoxicated, which is probably stating the obvious.
If there is a positive aspect to this story, Bulluck was responsible enough to look for a cab after a late night out instead of trying to drive. However, Bulluck followed up that good decision with a dumb one when he decided to assault and rob a cab driver.
