Bud Dupree turned himself in Friday after he was issued a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from a fight at the Walgreens last month.
According to police, it started after an employee took a video of Dupree on his phone. The Tennessee Titans linebacker then grabbed the victim and his phone and they got into a fight.
According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, he was booked on a misdemeanor assault charge. The incident took place just hours after a Titans home game against the Miami Dolphins.
Sources close to Dupree say he was being heckled and threatened before the incident escalated.
Back in January, the Titans said they were “aware of the situation and are gathering additional information.”
Dupree signed a five-year, $82.5 million deal with the Titans last offseason after beginning his career as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He tallied three sacks, a forced fumble and 17 tackles in 11 games during the 2021 regular season.
Dupree had one sack of Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow during Tennessee’s divisional round playoff loss to Cincinnati.
