On Saturday night, former NFL linebacker Keith Bulluck served as a member of the Tennessee broadcast crew for the Titans home game against the Falcons. After the game, Bulluck went from the booth to a cell.
According to NewsChannel5.com, Bulluck was arrested early Sunday on robbery charges. Bulluck allegedly became enraged when a cab driver said he already had a paid customer — and Bulluck allegedly assaulted the driver and took money from him. Per WSMV-TV, Bulluck allegedly took a $100 bill.
The driver opted to press charges, so Bulluck was charged with class C felony robbery.
He has since been released from custody after posting bond. Approached by a reporter following his release, Bulluck didn’t seem to be very pleased about being questioned.
“I’ve been here for 10 years and this is what you want to talk about?” Bulluck said.
Per the report, Bulluck may have been “very intoxicated” at the time of the incident. While it doesn’t excuse the behavior, it helps explain why he would do something that on the surface seems pretty stupid.
Then again, getting intoxicated to the point where it would seem to be a good idea to rob a cab driver is pretty stupid on its own.
