05:37 AM ET 09.04 | New Lions running back Rudi Johnson said former Lions running back Tatum Bell stole two of his bags from the locker room Monday. Johnson said when the bags were returned Tuesday, they were empty; missing were his identification, credit cards, about $200 in cash and some undergarments. "All this happened once he got released," Johnson said Wednesday as he came off the practice field. "He came here to get some stuff out of his locker. That's when he scooped the bags up. Some real shyster, conniving stuff, man." Bell said it was an honest mistake. He said he intended to pick up some bags for a former teammate, and he grabbed the wrong ones. He said he never opened the bags and doesn't have anything of Johnson's. "I ain't no thief," Bell told the Free Press in a phone interview. "I ain't never been one, and I ain't never going to be one. It was all a misunderstanding."
