OCALA, Fla. (AP) -Former NFL punter Rick Tuten was arrested Thursday for buying stolen goods and reselling the merchandise for a profit.
The Marion County sheriff's office said in a new release that deputies began investigating Tuten when they learned he purchased a $4,000 all-terrain vehicle for $900. He allegedly purchased other ATVs and electronics from suspects arrested for multiple burglaries.
Tuten played 12 season in the NFL for Philadelphia, Buffalo, Seattle and St. Louis. His final season was 1999 with the Rams.
During a taped telephone conversation, a police informant told Tuten she had two stolen flat screen televisions valued at $1,500.
According to an affidavit, Tuten replied, ``I don't know nothing about nothing.'' He then instructed the woman to deliver the items to his home. Tuten paid the woman $600 for the televisions and then asked her to deliver more.
Tuten, 42, was charged with two counts of dealing in stolen property.
Authorities found the stolen ATV on Tuten's property during a search of his home.
He was released from Marion County jail on $20,000 bond, jail officials said. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney. A phone number for Tuten was not listed.
