Move over Patrick Kane, Keith Bulluck seems to have one-upped you on the stupidity-involving-a-cabbie meter.
Bulluck, a former Pro Bowl linebacker with the Tennessee Titans, was arrested on a felony robbery charge after allegedly getting into an altercation with a taxi driver Sunday in Nashville, Tenn.
According to a statement from the Nashville police, Bulluck approached a cabbie outside a bar, there was an altercation and the ex-NFLer allegedly took a $100 bill from the driver and left the scene. Cops found Bulluck in a nearby parking lot and arrested him. He was released on a $10,000 bond soon after.
“I was out with friends last night in Nashville and was taking a cab home,” Bulluck said in a statement, according to ESPN. “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.”
Bulluck, who retired in 2012 after playing 11 seasons in the NFL, is due to appear in court Sept. 26.
Kane, of the Chicago Blackhawks, got himself into hot water after an incident with a taxi driver in Buffalo, allegedly puunching him in a dispute over the 10 cents in change he was supposed to receive. Kane eventually pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct charges and was given a conditional discharge.
