Ex-Titans player charged with robbery

Former Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck has been

charged with felony robbery after a cab driver accused him of

taking money during an argument.

The driver was waiting outside a bar for a paid fare early

Sunday when Bulluck approached him asking for a ride, police said

in a statement. The driver said he declined and Bulluck grabbed him

by his shirt, took a $100 bill and fled.

In a statement to The Tennessean, Bulluck described the incident

as 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,” he said.

Bulluck retired from football in 2012 after playing 11 seasons

in the NFL, 10 of them with the Titans.

Bulluck worked as an analyst for WKRN-TV Saturday night on the

Falcons-Titans game.

He is scheduled to work for the Titans-Vikings preseason game on

Thursday in Minneapolis. Station manager Stan Knott was quoted by

The Tennessean as saying that a decision hasn’t been made on

whether to replace Bulluck.

Coach Mike Munchak said Sunday that hadn’t heard much of the

incident and declined to comment. Munchak was Tennessee’s offensive

line coach while Bulluck was a linebacker with the team.

”When he was here playing as a football player, he made good

decisions,” Munchak said. ”I’ll wait to hear the information as

to what happened, but I am sure it will all get worked out and I am

sure it is something he is very innocent in, I hope.”
