Former Tennessee Titans tackle, Michael Oher, was cited for allegedly assaulting an Uber driver.

The incident happened on April 14 in Nashville when Oher and four other people met their ride-share driver to go to The Southern restaurant in downtown.

The driver told officers, Oher said to follow another driver to the restaurant. The victim said he didn't think the lead vehicle knew where they were going and suggested he take the lead.

That's when the driver and Oher apparently began arguing, in which Oher allegedly claimed the driver was trying to collect more fare money.

A decision was made that they would go to Zanies on 8th Avenue South instead. However, they stopped at the 8th Avenue Mapco gas station because, two of the passengers needed to use the restroom before they reached the comedy club.

Once at the location, the driver said Oher pushed him down to the ground and then kicked him in the leg. The victim said the passengers also got out of the vehicle and pulled the former football player back so that he wouldn't do anything else.

Oher was cited with assault.
