Hours after he helped the Tennessee Titans beat the Miami Dolphins at home, pass rusher Bud Dupree was allegedly involved in an altercation with a Walgreens employee.

On Monday, Nashville police were attempting to get in contact with Dupree about the physical incident, which reportedly left two employees with cut injuries. According to Titans insider Paul Kuharsky, Dupree received a citation this morning.

He has officially been charged with misdemeanor assault.

Per WKRN, the dispute began after a male employee began filming Dupree in the store.

"According to police, the dispute started after a male employee began taking video of Dupree with his phone," WKRN wrote. "A 20-year-old male employee was treated for a cut to his forehead and a 21-year-old female employee was treated for a cut to her hand."

The 28-year-old Dupree is in his first season with the Titans after six years with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He has recorded 14 tackles and three sacks in 10 games.

Dupree had one tackle in Tennessee's win over Miami two days ago, which clinched the AFC South for the Titans and helped them move into the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC.
