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
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.”
