[CBS Sportsline] Chiefs LB Mike Vrabel was arrested and charged with felony theft at the Belterra Casino in Florence, Ind., Pro Football Talk reported Monday afternoon.
According to Switzerland County officials, Vrabel was booked at 5:28 a.m. Monday and released at 10:39 a.m. after posting a $600 bond.
The charge against him is a Class-D felony, the lowest-level felony in the state.
According to Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, “The matter involves a bar tab and some confusion over how many beers should be on it.” It’s a minor issue that is expected to soon be resolved with a “dismissal for want of prosecution.”
“We are aware of the reports regarding Mike Vrabel, but we are not permitted to have contact with Mike at this time,” the Chiefs said in a 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.”
