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.
