Keith Bulluck, 36, has been charged with robbery.
Bulluck, who retired after the 2012 season, was arrested on felony robbery charges after a cab driver accusedhim of taking money during an argument early Sunday in Nashville.
Reports say that the cab driver called 911 at 3:50 a.m. ET after Bulluck approached him and took a $100 bill. Bulluck then allegedly fled the scene.
Once police arrived the cab driver led them to Bulluck and identified the former Tennessee Titans linebacker. Bulluck was later released on $10,000 bond.
Officers noted the cab driver’s shirt and undershirt were torn, according to the statement, which also said Bulluck smelled of alcohol.
Bulluck is due to appear in court on Sept. 26.
“I’ve been here for 10 years and this is what you want to talk about?” Bulluck told a reporter waiting outside the jail.
Bulluck spent 10 of his 11 years playing for the Titans.
