Vrabel Busted At Indiana Casino

Details remain sketchy but a police official in Switzerland County in southeast Indiana confirmed Monday that OLB Mike Vrabel was arrested on felony theft charges at a casino in the city of Ohio River town of Florence.

Vrabel was arrested Monday morning and released after posting $600 bond. ProFootballTalk.com first reported the news.

On Monday, Vrabel’s agent, Cleveland attorney Neil Cornrich confirmed his client’s arrest and issued the following statement from the linebacker: “It was an unfortunate misunderstanding and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication. I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter.”

Just what that matter may have been remains a mystery at this time. He was arrested at the Belterra Casino in Florence around 5:30 a.m. Vrabel was released around 10:40 a.m. after posting bond.

The arrest came just days before the first hearing on the anti-trust suit filed by players against the NFL. Vrabel is one of the plaintiffs in that legal action that will hit U.S. District Court in Minneapolis on Wednesday. He is also a member of the NFL Players Association executive committee.

Vrabel was expected to be in Kansas City on Tuesday when Chiefs players are scheduled to meet for the first time since the owners locked the NFL doors.

    Two days ago…I’d be willing to bet that Vrabel would be near the top of anyone’s list of the Top 5 Chiefs Least Likely to be Arrested.

    Felony Theft is some serious shiz.

    Will somebody please give this man a job?
