Raheem Brock, a Temple graduate the Eagles let get away, was arrested Thursday and charged with theft of services and resisting arrest. The 33-year-old defensive 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.

A number of people told Raheem Brock he should take his football talents to a college other than Temple. One was his father, Zachary Dixon, who used his Temple career as a springboard to a seven-season career in the NFL. "Oh, my dad had nothing against the football program," Brock said. "He just felt it would be better if I got away from Philadelphia because so much bad stuff seems to happen here. " The arm-twisting - gentle though it was - didn't work. The 6-3, 245-pound Brock, who twice was a first-team Daily News All-City linebacker at Murrell Dobbins, has made an oral commitment to the Owls.
