Former Titans Star Keith Bulluck Has Robbery Charges Dropped in Cab Incident
Keith Bulluck is one of the greatest defensive players in the history of the Tennessee Titans organization, but the former NFL star now finds himself in trouble with the law, as he was arrested on class C felony robbery charges early Sunday morning, according to NewsChannel5.com.
UPDATE: Friday, Sept. 13
The Tennessean reports that charges against Bulluck have been dropped:
The state dropped its case against former Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck this morning.
UPDATE: Sunday, Aug. 25
Keith Bulluck has issued a statement to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean concerning his arrest last night:
I was out with friends last night in Nashville and was taking a cab home. There was a misunderstanding between me and the cab driver about getting my money back for a service not rendered. At 2am, things could easily get lost in translation, but regardless of who was right or wrong, I regret putting myself in that situation.
The Tennessean also talked to WKRN general manager Stan Knott about Bulluck's status in the broadcast booth before the Titans' final preseason game on Thursday.
“We are not ready to talk about that, and I think it would be inappropriate to talk about that yet,” Knott said.
The incident allegedly occurred at 2:50 a.m. ET in Nashville as police received a call regarding a taxi driver having an argument with someone. The person in question was reportedly Bulluck, as it is alleged that he became enraged when the taxi driver refused to give him a ride due to the fact that another fare had already taken priority.
This led Bulluck to allegedly assault the taxi driver and take money from him. Bulluck was arrested and booked at 4:30 a.m. ET, as the taxi driver reportedly wanted to prosecute. He posted bond and was released.
When asked about the incident, Bulluck was unwilling to elaborate on what may or may not have happened, according to NewsChannel5.com.
"I've been here for 10 years and this is what you want to talk about?" said Bulluck.
Bulluck spent a decade with the Titans before playing one season with the New York Giants in 2010. After going unsigned during the 2011 season, he decided to retire as a Titan. Bulluck racked up 125 or more tackles in each season from 2002 through 2006, and he made the Pro Bowl and the All-Pro first team in 2003.
Most recently, Bulluck has done some television work for the Titans as part of the team's preseason broadcast when it faced the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday night.
It remains to be seen how this alleged incident will impact Bulluck's standing within the organization.
