Kansas City Chief Mike Vrabel was apparently arrested at an Indiana casino this morning and booked on a felony theft charge.The timing could not be worse, either. Vrabel is one of Tom Brady’s co-plaintiffs in the big NFL lockout lawsuit that will get a hearing before a judge on Wednesday.

No other details were available about the crime, but police did confirm to ProFootballTalk that the Mike Vrabel who was arrested is the same one who plays football.

Update: Vrabel’s agent confirms the arrest, but calls it a “misunderstanding.”

Update 2: NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora says the arrest may be related to the number of beers on Vrabel’s bar tab. Hardly a handcuff worthy offence.
