Earlier this year, Titans linebacker Bud Dupree reportedly turned himself in to the Metro Nashville Police Department on a assault charge that was in connection with a fight at a Walgreen’s store in Nashville from January.
This week, the Tennessee Titans linebacker pled guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge, according to TMZ. He appeared in court on Monday and made the plea after striking a deal with prosecutors.
Dupree pled guilty to misdemeanor assault offensive or provocative, the court official told TMZ. Dupree was sentenced to unsupervised probation for 6 months, according to the official. He also had to pay $418 in court costs.
Cops said at the time, Dupree grabbed an employee and attempted to take the man’s phone, before eventually fleeing the scene prior to police officers’ arrival. The group left out of the store and re-entered with Dupree, who reportedly grabbed the employee and his phone before they began to fight.
Dupree, a former pass rusher with Pittsburgh, signed with Tennessee during the 2021 offseason on a five-year, $82.5 million deal in March. He finished with a combined 17 tackles, three sacks, eight quarterback hits, two tackles for loss, a forced fumble, and a pass defended in 11 games with the Titans this season.
