KMBC 9 in Kansas City has tracked down some more details regarding the Monday morning arrest of Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel.
Per KMBC, Indiana Gaming Commissioner Director of Enforcement Kenny Rowan said that Vrabel was seen by an enforcement agent taking “bottles of alcohol from a deli” without paying for them. We’re told that the “bottles of alcohol” were eight bottles of beer.
Since video cameras are installed throughout most casinos (insert your own “Vrabel should be used to that since he played for the Patriots” line here), there should be visual evidence of the alleged incident.
And speaking of the Patriots, would it be too cynical to suspect a Colts-Pats rivalry angle to the decision of the enforcement agent to have Vrabel arrested?
Either way, free booze flows like spring water in most casinos, since it serves as the ultimate WD-40 for the hinge of a wallet. We’d therefore be surprised if the owners of the casino decide to pursue the matter.
