Mike Vrabel charged with theft from riverboat casino
Kansas City linebacker Mike Vrabel was arrested yesterday and charged with theft from a riverboat casino. The Switzerland County sheriff's department said Vrabel, 35, was arrested at 5:30 a.m. and released about 5 hours later on $600 cash bond. He was charged with a class D felony. It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication, Vrabel said in a statement issued through his agent. I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter. The incident happened at the Belterra Casino in Florence, Ind. A call to the security department of the casino was not immediately returned. Vrabel, a three-time Super Bowl winner with the New England Patriots, is a member of the NFLPA executive committee and one of the plaintiffs in the players' antitrust lawsuit against the NFL.
A federal judge in Minnesota has decided to combine two requests to halt the NFL lockout. U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson said yesterday she will hear arguments from attorneys for Tom Brady, Drew Brees and other current players, as well as attorneys for retired players. The current players and retirees have filed similar antitrust lawsuits against the league in addition to their requests for an injunction to stop the lockout. The arguments will be heard tomorrow.
Commissioner Roger Goodell says the NFL will insist its next labor deal with players includes testing for human growth hormone. After appearing yesterday with U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings at a high school to speak about the dangers of steroid use, Goodell said the NFL needs to do more to keep banned substances out of the sport. HGH use is prohibited by the NFL, but the league currently does not test for it.
