Tennessee Titans outside linebacker Alvin “Bud” Dupree Jr. has been cited for a misdemeanor assault charge after an altercation with a Walgreens’ employee on Sunday (Jan. 2) evening, according to a press release from Metro Nashville Police.

Dupree was reportedly with a group when the altercation occurred at the store located at 1104 Rosa L. Parks Blvd.

The narrative on the citation states:

“On 1/2/2002, around 2000 hours, the victim was working at the Walgreens located at 1104 Rosa L. Parks Blvd. A group of subjects entered the store to shop. Some of the subjects got into a verbal argument with the victim. The subjects left, then re-entered the store with the defendant. The defendant then grabbed the victim and his phone. They then got into a physical altercation before the defendant left the location. Due to the victim being assaulted, the defendant is being charged with assault-fear of bodily injury.”

The 20-year-old victim signed the citation as the prosecutor. Dupree is to report for booking on the citation in three weeks.

Dupree signed a five-year, $85 million contract this past offseason. He’s played in 10 games in the 2021-22 season.
