LAS VEGAS (AP) – Authorities say former NFL Pro Bowl linebacker Joey Porter was released from a California jail after paying $70,000 owed to the Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas.
Prosecutor Samuel Bateman in Las Vegas says Porter was arrested last weekend on a theft and bad check complaint filed earlier this year. Bateman said the 35-year-old Porter paid the amount and was released pending dismissal of the charge. A court date was not immediately set.
