Titans linebacker Bud Dupree was cited for misdemeanor assault early last month after an incident at a Walgreens in Nashville and he formally turned himself in on the charge Friday.

Natalie Neysa Alund of the Tennessean reports that Dupree reported to the Davidson County courthouse for booking on Friday morning. He was fingerprinted and a mug shot was taken before he was released.

Dupree allegedly got in a physical altercation with an employee of the store after that employee exchanged words with people in Dupree’s group. That employee was treated for a cut to his forehead when police officers arrived on the scene.

Dupree is scheduled to be back in court for a hearing on April 22.

    Who in their right mind decides to talk smack to an NFL player at a Walgreen’s?


    Which NFL player in their right mind decides to talk smack and physically assault an employee at Walgreen’s

  2. Didn’t they cover the part about how professional athletes are entitled to special treatment like they’ve received most of their lives in the Walgreens employee orientation? Maybe after a “thorough” NFL style investigation (i.e. is it on video and will it embarrass us) they should fine that employee a similar percentage of their pay as would the NFL for player misconduct. Hopefully they have change for a nickel.

  3. Who thought it was a good idea to put a football team in Nashville where there is a Walgreens on every other corner?

  4. Don’t worry nothing will happen. Nfl will take care of it. They’re over the police. Just ask raiders WR who already failed tests while serving his sentence at home

  5. A person on their 9-5 doesn’t get into a little scuffle that cuts them needing medical attention at Wallgreens. I’ll guess Mr Dupree was quite a bit bigger and tougher so picking on someone on their gig and laying hands on them deserves an appropriate response.

    Typical Steelers pick.

    Within the last 15 years? You’ve got that right.
