Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel was arrested for theft Monday at a Florence, Ind., casino.

Vrabel was arrested at the Belterra Casino Resort & Spa on a Class-D felony charge -- the lowest level of felony crime in Indiana -- but was released Monday morning after posting a $600 bond.

"It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, and I take full responsibility for the miscommunication," Vrabel told ProFootballTalk.com in a statement through his agent Neil Cornrich. "I feel comfortable that after talking with the appropriate parties, we will resolve this matter."

The crime carries a penalty of six months to three years in jail and a fine of up to $10,000.

Vrabel, a 15-year veteran, won three Super Bowls with the New England Patriots before being traded to Kansas City along with quarterback Matt Cassel.

Vrabel has also been a vocal member of the NFL players association and is among the 10 players named in the NFLPA's antitrust lawsuit against the league.
