The fight took place on Jan. 2 after Tennessee defeated Miami to win the AFC South. According to the police 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 reportedly grabbed the employee and his phone before they began to fight. Don Aaron, the MNPD spokesperson, said the man was allegedly filming during the altercation, per the outlet.

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

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.
