Alvin “Bud” Dupree Jr. is an outside linebacker for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League, but this time he is making headlines for something not related to his activities on the field. Dupree has been charged with misdemeanor assault after police claim he assaulted a Walgreens employee in Nashville on Sunday night.
According to a Nashville Police Department statement obtained by the NFL, the OLB is being wanted for questioning by the Metro Nashville Police Department in connection with an alleged altercation involving Dupree, multiple people with him, and two employees inside a Walgreens.
An apparent argument erupted as a male employee began filming Dupree with his phone. According to police, a 20-year-old male Walgreens employee was treated for a cut on his forehead, and a 21-year-old female employee was treated for a cut on her hand.
The 6-foot-4, 269-pound pass rusher then allegedly attacked the staffer, taking both the man and his phone, according to cops. According to a statement from the Nashville Police Department, police got a complaint regarding a brawl at the Walgreens in Nashville at 8:06 p.m. CT. Police were called to the area, but Dupree and others suspected of being involved had already departed.
After six seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dupree, 28, is in his debut season with the Titans after signing a five-year, $85 million contract. In ten games this season, he has three sacks and one tackle, including one in Tennessee’s 34-3 win against Miami on Sunday to capture the AFC South.
