Chiefs LB Mike Vrabel was arrested early Monday morning in Florence, Ind. and charged with theft, which is a Class D felony in the state. James P. LaPine, the jail commander at the Switzerland (Ind.) County sheriff's office, told Pro Football Weekly that Vrabel was booked at 5:28 a.m. and was in jail for more than five hours before paying a $600 cash bond and being let go at 10:39 a.m.
Multiple media outlets have reported that the arrest stems from an incident at the Belterra Casino in Florence. Confusion over a beer tab resulted in Vrabel taking beverages he had not paid for. LaPine offered no further details on what transpired, and the casino has not responded to an interview request by PFW.
The player's agent, Neil Cornrich, provided PFW with the following statement from Vrabel: "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 Chiefs released a statement as well: "We are aware of the reports regarding Mike Vrabel, but we are not permitted to have contact with Mike at this time. 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."
Vrabel is a member of the NFLPA's executive committee and is scheduled to be in court on Wednesday for the players' antitrust lawsuit against the league's owners.
