NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A former Syracuse University and New York Giants football star is speaking out after getting arrested in Nashville.
Keith Bulluck, 36, was arrested for felony robbery after an altercation early Sunday morning with a taxi driver in Tennessee.
Nashville Police say Bulluck approached the cab and asked for a ride. When told that the driver already had a fare, Bulluck allegedly reached through the window and grabbed the driver by the shirt and wound up taking a 100-dollar bill that the man had in his hands.
Investigators say Bulluck smelled of alcohol at the time of his arrest.
Bulluck released a statement to The Tennessean and says:
"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."
