A police statement says the driver was waiting outside a bar for a paid fare early Sunday when Bulluck approached him asking for a ride. According to police, the driver said he declined and Bulluck grabbed him by his shirt, took a $100 bill and fled.
When officers arrived, the cab driver identified Bulluck as the suspect and he was arrested and booked into jail.
WTVF-TV in Nashville reports Bulluck declined to comment about the charges when he bonded out a couple of hours later.
Bulluck retired from football in 2012 after playing 11 seasons in the NFL, 10 of them with the Titans.
