According to court records, Bulluck leaned into the passenger side of a cab looking for a ride. The cab driver said he already had fare when Bulluck allegedly grabbed him by the shirt and took a $100 bill. The driver led police to a nearby parking lot, where Bulluck was discovered with two $100 bills. He spent two and a half hours in police custody before being released on a $10,000 bail.

Bulluck released an official statement, via The Tennessean:

"I was out with friends last night in Nashville and was taking a cab home," Bulluck said. "There was a misunderstanding between me and the cab driver about getting my money back for a service not rendered. At 2 a.m., things could easily get lost in translation, but regardless of who was right or wrong, I regret putting myself in that situation."

Bulluck spent 10 seasons with the Titans from 2000-09, making the Pro Bowl in 2003. He was on the WKRN Titans broadcast team for Saturday night's game hours before the arrest. The network has not decided whether or not he will work Thursday's preseason game against the Vikings.
