Raheem Brock, who played for the Seahawks last season but will be a free agent once the lockout ends, was arrested Thursday night after he ran out on a $27 restaurant tab, Philadelphia Magazine reports.

According to, the former Temple player allegedly walked out on a bill at the South Street club, Copacabana, before police questioned him nearby. A source told that "there [was] a minor struggle and police put Brock under arrest." says Brock was charged with theft and resisting arrest and was released Friday morning without bail.

We've written previously that the lockout isn't strictly a billionaires-vs.-millionaires battle over money. Like most of us, many players rely on their weekly paychecks. They aren't all wealthy enough to take eight months off work with no financial worries. That was the case with Dolphins rookie fullback Charles Clay. Apparently, Brock could use some walking-around money, too.

Too bad he didn't call Roger Goodell for a loan before allegedly dining and dashing.

Meanwhile, Ray Lewis nods knowingly.

Raheem Brock arrested for running out on $27 tab

C'mon guys Mr. Brock knew he didn't have 27 bucks on him when he sat down to eat.  The fact that he made it worse by resisting arrest shows he wasn't thinking.  I myself have never gone out to eat with no money but if I did I would expect the cops would do the same thing.

RayRay was right. The players haven't even missed a pre-season game and they are already resorting to crime.
