Funny stuff.....Chiefs linebacker Vrabel was arrested

Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel was arrested for theft Monday at a Florence, Ind., casino.

Vrabel was arrested at the Belterra Casino Resort & Spa on a Class D felony charge -- the lowest level of felony crime in Indiana -- but was released Monday morning after posting a $600 bond.

An Indiana gaming agent saw Vrabel taking "bottles of alcohol from a deli" without paying for them, Indiana Gaming Commissioner Director of Enforcement Kenny Rowan told KMBC 9 in Kansas City.

"It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication," Vrabel told ProFootballTalk.com in a statement through his agent Neil Cornrich. "I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter."

Vrabel, 35, was arrested at 5:30 a.m. and released about five hours later. The crime carries a penalty of six months to three years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000.

"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."

Vrabel, a 15-year veteran, won three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots before being traded to Kansas City along with quarterback Matt Cassel.

Vrabel has also been a vocal member of the NFL Players Association and is among the 10 players named in the NFLPA's antitrust lawsuit against the league.
