Chiefs Linebacker And NFLPA* Rep Mike Vrabel Arrested In Indiana

Aside from Peyton Manning and the Colts consistently kicking his ass from 2005 to the present, I guess former Patriots and current Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel has another reason to hate the state of Indiana. From PFT:

Acting on a tip, we contacted the Switzerland County Jail in Vervay, Indiana.  Jail Commander James LaPine tells PFT that Vrabel was arrested for theft at the Belterra Casino in Florence, Indiana earlier today.

The charge, under Indiana law, is a Class D felony.  LaPine had no information regarding the thing that was allegedly stolen.

In Indiana, theft of anything, regardless of value, is a Class D felony.  It carries a sentence of six months to three years in prison.

Vrabel was booked at 5:28 a.m. local time.  He was released at 10:39 a.m. after posting $600 bond.

This is tremendously embarrassing not just for Vrabel, but for the NFLPA*. Vrabel is a very outspoken representative of what used to be the NFL's players union. In fact, he's due in court on Wednesday as a named plaintiff in the players' lawsuit against the NFL for anti-trust violation.

Also listed as a named plaintiff on that lawsuit is Peyton Manning. I'm thinking that maybe Peyton should probably go in Vrabel's place, but that's just me.

[UPDATE]: At a time when NFLPA* leaders like Vrabel are telling players they need to save money in order to stay financially secure during the lockout, he gets arrested at a casino. Gonna go out on a limb and say Vrabel probably wasn't there for the shows. 

Total facepalm moment for Vrabel and the players.
