Titans' Bud Dupree Charged With Misdemeanor Assault in Fight at Walgreens

Titans linebacker Bud Dupree was charged with misdemeanor assault after he was involved in a fight at a Walgreens store in Nashville on Sunday, according to a statement released Tuesday by the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

The fight happened after the Titans defeated the Dolphins to win the AFC South. According to the department's release, a group of people that Dupree was with got into an argument with a male employee inside the store located in the 1100 block of Rosa L. Parks Boulevard, around 8 p.m. 

The group left out of the store and re-entered with Dupree, who grabbed the employee and and his phone before they began to fight. Don Aaron, the MNPD spokesperson, said the man was allegedly filming during the altercation. 

The Tennesseean reported that Dupree had left the store by the time police arrived and the male employee suffered a cut to his forehead.
