NFL Bad Ass Arrested for Ditching $27 Bar Tab

6/17/2011 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

His name is Raheem ... he's not a showgirl ... but he was arrested outside of a place called  the Copacabana last night after the Seattle Seahawks stud allegedly walked out on a $27 bar tab.


Law enforcement sources tell us ...  Raheem Brock -- the starting defensive end for Seattle -- was arrested in Philadelphia when someone inside the Copacabana called 911 complaining the 6'4", 275-pounder left the establishment without paying his bill.

Cops responded to the scene, located Brock, and arrested him on suspicion of theft of services and resisting arrest -- both misdemeanors. We're told Brock did not get physical with the cops, but was "non-compliant" with the arresting officers.

Raheem -- who recently signed a 5-year, $23.6 MILLION contract -- was taken to a nearby jail where he was booked.

Calls to the club and Raheem have not been returned.

How is walking out on a bill a 911 call. In my neck of the woods if I call the police on 911 for a crime that already happned, they tell me to call the regular #.

To Sharperadar-
In Philadelphia and most major cities 911 is how you contact the Police. All Police Officers are dispatched via a call-taker at the 911 radio room. You can't call the district HQ or the non emergency 311 number if you want the Police to respond.
The bar did exactly what they should have done-and they positively ID'd him and gave a statement for the charge of "theft of services".
Mr. Brock set the events in motion for this incident and he alone is to blame.

Its funny how racist people can be with their comments when the subject is black but yet blacks are not allowed to label anything racism lest their accused of "pulling the race card" when "racism doesn't exist anymore."

this story is ridiculous, total publicity stunt by the restaurant. how could he have skipped out on his tab if he was arrested on the premises as the story says? seems to me you haven't skipped out on a tab until you've left. and a 911 call for $27? totally people just looking for press - they should be the ones getting charges.

These football players keep making the news because it's sensational. Not because they are dumb or black or rich but because it sells. Football players are used to a very structured work environment with OTA's, 3 a days, football camp and preseason and with the current CBA in flux they are all on an extended vacation. It's like college kids on spring break, they make questionable decisions but don't usually make the papers.
I'd like to know if there was any effort from the wait staff to get his attention and let him know he didn't pay his tab. Or if like someone else said is this just a way for some establishment to make the news and get free advertising.
Jeez $27 is maybe 4 beers these days... I'll pay his tab for him.
And yes I am from Seattle so cut the brother some slack.

I agree with the guy who said it should be a crime to call 911 on a 27 buck tab! all the crime in Philadelphia and this guy calls 911? thats a hint that it was a more personal or emotional problem with the bar! i worked as a bartender and if someone walked out i would be a man and go tell them they forgot and if they refused i would call the police(not 911) and give um a heads up about the guy..
