Two days before Vrabel appeared as a named plaintiff in the antitrust suit against the NFL, he made an unanticipated trip through the criminal justice system.

The Raiders receiver was arrested for three misdemeanors, including possession of a drug without a prescription. The drug -- later identified as Viagra -- was allegedly in an unlabeled bottle found after police arrested Murphy for resisting arrest.
