Tennessee Titans linebacker Bud Dupree pleaded guilty to a lesser assault charge on Monday after an altercation at a Nashville-area Walgreens earlier this year and was sentenced to six months of probation, according to TMZ Sports.

Dupree pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault (offensive or provocative) charge on Monday after reaching a plea agreement, per the report. He was initially cited for misdemeanor assault (fear of bodily injury).

Dupree was reportedly at a Walgreens on Jan. 2 when an argument broke out between people he was with and an employee. The male employee was reportedly filming at the time, and Dupree then allegedly grabbed the man and his phone and started a “physical altercation.”

Dupree left before police arrived at the scene. He then turned himself in in February.

Dupree had 17 tackles and three sacks in 11 games last season, his first with the Titans. The 29-year-old is entering the second year of a five-year, $82.5 million deal with Tennessee.
