No matter how tough things may be for out-of-work pro football players, it’s doubtful they’re hard up enough for cash that they have to resort to swiping beer.
If there’s one place you don’t want to be accused of theft in, it’s Indiana, where theft of anything is considered a Class D felony, no matter the value of the object stolen. A conviction means a potential sentence of between six months to three years in prison.
The player, who was released from custody after posting bond, issued a statement that chalked up the incident as a minsunderstanding:
It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication. I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter.”
What’s the wildest “misunderstanding” you’ve gotten yourself involved in to score some beer?
