Bulluck acknowledges “misunderstanding” with cab driver

Former NFL linebacker Keith Bulluck, who currently serves as an on-air analyst for Titans preseason games, has issued a statement in the wake of a felony robbery arrest.

“I was out with friends last night in Nashville and was taking a cab home,” Bulluck said, via 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.”

The cab driver claims Bulluck assaulted the driver and stole a $100 bill.

For now, it’s unknown whether the incident will prevent Bulluck from working Thursday night’s preseason finale.

“We are not ready to talk about that, and I think it would be inappropriate to talk about that yet,” WKRN-TV General Manager Stan Knott told the Tennessean.

Coincidentally (or not), the driver claimed in 2007 to have been involved in a similar incident with state Senator Ophelia Ford.   The driver said at the time that Ford grabbed his shirt, tore off a button, and then cursed at him.  The driver also was convicted in 1999 of filing a false accident report.

Still, Bulluck’s statement indicates something happened.  Chances are we’ll never know precisely what it was.

    is any team more irrelevant than the titans, except for the steelers, of course?

    Keith took the cabbie’s wallet, peeled off a hundred dollar bill, and told him to “keep the change”.

    Just saw another article in the Tennessian that said that this same cab driver has been charged with filing false police reports of this very same nature in the past!!! So please lets not hurle insults and throw Bulluck under the bus until all of the facts come out. Keep in mind Bulluck has never been in any off the field issues in the past…..

    That was stupid of Bullock if that’s what really happened but the cab driver seems suspect as well.

    The translator they brought in to resolve the misunderstanding between Keith and the cabbie wasn’t fluent in the particular dialect required.

    I have misunderstandings with cab drivers all the time.

    “Hey jackass, I said to take the 59th street bridge. Why are we on the Triboro Bridge? You want to give me the $8 toll? I don’t care which way is faster. I know the fastest way to get to La Guardia. You just lost your tip.”

    Nobody’s perfect, including Bulluck, but this was a strange story to begin with because in all his years as a player, Bulluck was always known more as a homebody/movie buff than a partying troublemaker. This accusation seemed very much out of character.

    It’s at least worth waiting to see what the deal is with this cabbie with a history, before jumping to conclusions about Bulluck. (Adrian Peterson might agree with that.)

    What an imbecile.

    Giants could use him now!

    Bulluck is/was a class act. Don’t buy this cabbies story for a minute.
