Former Patriot Mike Vrabel Arrested For Felony Theft At Indiana Casino

What an eventful week for former Patriots and the law. Last Wednesday running back Laurence Maroney was charged with possession of Marijuana.

Today, according to Pro Football Talk, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel was arrested for felony theft at the Belterra Casino in Indiana.

Neil Conrich, Vrabel’s agent, released a statement from the 3-time Super Bowl Champion regarding the arrest.

“It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication,” Vrabel said.  “I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter.”

Vrabel has played in the NFL for 15 seasons, most notably with the New England Patriots. During his time with the Patriots, Vrabel went to one Pro Bowl and seemingly overnight became a superstar on the defensive side of the ball. Vrabel also famously caught 10 touchdowns in New England.

Vrabel was apart of the Matt Cassel trade, where the Patriots received a 2009 second round pick (which became Pat Chung). With the Chiefs, Vrabel has just recorded two sacks in his two seasons in Kansas City. At 35 years old Vrabel is at the tail-end of his productive NFL career.

We can imagine that this isn’t how Vrabel wanted it to end.
