NFL: Former Tennessee Titan Keith Bulluck was arrested early Sunday morning on robbery charges and released about an hour after his arrest.
The Tennessean reports the 36-year-old Bulluck had worked on the television crew for Saturday night’s Titans-Atlanta Falcons game, then went out afterwards. Investigators say the incident happened around 5 am Sunday outside a night club when Bulluck asked the cab driver for a ride, but was told he already had a fare. The cabbie claimed Bulluck grabbed him by the shirt and took $100.
Bulluck issued a statement Sunday claiming the event was a misunderstanding. He is scheduled to appear in court September 26th.
