NFL's Mike Vrabel In Casino Theft Arrest

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel has landed himself in a spot of bother after being arrested on Monday at the Belterra Casino in Florence, Indiana.
The 6ft 4in, 261lb NFL star has had many highlights throughout his illustrious career, including winning three Super Bowl championships. However, being arrested for allegedly stealing eight  bottles of beer from the deli inside the Belterra Casino, is one episode the 35 tear-old would soon rather forget.
Apparently an enforcement agent observed Vrabel helping himself to the alcohol with the  whole incident also recorded on the casino’s CCTV cameras. Vrabel was then arrested at 5:28AM and later released at 10:39AM, after posting a $600 bail. Vrabel now finds himself facing a possible six months to three years in prison for the Class-D felony, as well as a $10,000 fine.
However, Mike Vrabel appeared upbeat during the embarrassing episode and said:
“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.”
The Kansas City Chiefs were then quick to support their player and issued the following statement:
“We understand that Mike has communicated publicly that the matter is a misunderstanding for which he takes full responsibility. We hope it is resolved for Mike in a positive way.”
In the meantime, Mike Vrabel’s arrest couldn’t have come at a worse time in light of the labour dispute between the NFL Players Association and the owners who have locked them out. Mike Vrabel is a member of the NFLPA’s 11-man executive committee and is currently in the process of trying to resolve the ongoing dispute.
In light of the recent theft and lockout situation, one Kansas City Chiefs fan by the online name ESPN_BillWilliamson echoed his concern over the state of the team, and wrote:
“I think the longer the lockout goes, the more arrests we’ll see. These players need to get back in a structured workout program. Sadly, too much free time is not good for these guys.”
