PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Longtime NFL defensive end Raheem Brock was arrested in his hometown of Philadelphia after a dispute at a restaurant.
Police Lt. Raymond Evers says Brock ran out on a $27 bar tab at Copabanana on Thursday.
Bartender Rob Harris tells WTXF-TV that Brock’s party was asked to leave after one of them brought in food from another eatery. Harris says they told the waitress they weren’t going to pay the bar tab.
Harris didn’t immediately return a telephone message left by The Associated Press at the restaurant Friday night.
Court documents indicate Brock is charged with theft and resisting arrest. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
Brock played for the Seattle Seahawks last year after several seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.
