Panthers’ Michael Oher Accused of Assaulting Nashville Uber Driver
Carolina Panthers offensive tackle Michael Oher is accused of assaulting an Uber driver in Nashville, Tennessee, police told WSOCTV.
Oher, whose life was the subject of the movie “The Blind Side,” was cited for an alleged assault stemming from an April 14 incident where an argument got physical real quick.
“The Uber driver claims that on April 14 the two got into an argument during a ride to downtown Nashville. The driver said he put his hand on Oher’s face and then Oher knocked him to the ground.
Oher has been ordered to appear for booking on May 8 on the misdemeanor assault citation.”
The Panthers have since sent out a statement regarding the matter:
“We are aware an incident occurred involving Michael. We have no further comment at this time.”
Oher missed the last 13 games of the 2016 season with a concussion and has yet to be cleared to play for the upcoming season.
