TMZ Sports reports that Bud Dupree, a linebacker for the Tennessee Titans, pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of assault on Monday and was sentenced to six months’ probation for an incident that occurred earlier this year at a Walgreens in the Nashville area.

The report states that Dupree reached a plea agreement on Monday and pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor charge of assault (offensive or provocative). As a first offense, he was charged with simple assault (fear of bodily injury).

On January 2, Dupree and some friends were at a Walgreens when an altercation broke out between them and an employee. Dupree allegedly started a “physical altercation” by grabbing the male employee and his phone while he was filming.

Before the police could arrive, Dupree fled. Then, in February, he surrendered to authorities.
