Raheem Brock, a Temple grad the Eagles let get away, was arrested Thursday and charged with theft of services and resisting arrest.

The 33-year-old defense end, an NFL free agent, was accused of walking out on a bill at the Copabanana bar on South Street, according to police.

Apparently, Brock, another man and a woman were asked to leave because she brought in food from another restaurant, so they left without paying for already-served drinks, police said.

A scuffle followed when Brock was questioned soon afterward by police at another South Street eatery, Iskabibble's, police said.

The bill was for $27, according to reports.

Brock was released today on his own recognizance.

He was scheduled to be one of several NFL players at a free local football camp this afternoon and Saturday called the Legends of the Pub. Several hundred students from Public League schools were expected to attend. (More details: www.jahrievans.com.)

The Eagles drafted the Dobbins High and Temple grad in 2002, but had to let him go for lack of enough money left in the team's rookie salary pool. He went on to play for the Indianapolis Colts, the Tennessee Titans and the Seattle Seahawks.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
