Carolina Panther, Michael Oher, didn’t turn a “blind side” to this one.
It’s being reported that Oher allegedly assaulted an Uber driver in Nashville, Tn.
the Uber driver said he picked up Oher and four friends at a house to go to the Southern in downtown Nashville. Oher asked the driver to follow another car also leaving the home.
The report says that while on the way, the driver suggested he take the lead, saying the other car didn’t seem to know where it was going.
An argument then broke out between Oher and driver, the document states, with Oher believing the driver was just trying to get more money.
The incident report says the argument continued as the group decided they would instead go to Zanie’s on Eighth Avenue South.
Before arriving, two people in the car needed to the use the restroom, so the driver stopped at the nearby Mapco on the corner of Eighth and Wedgewood Avenue.
The report indicates the driver got out of his car to open the passengers’ door when Oher confronted him outside.
Oher is then accused of pushing him to the ground and kicking him in the leg. The other people inside the car then restrained the football player before he could do anything else.
The simplest things that could be avoided with professional players. And not taking the driver side in this, but if the driver is just suggesting an easier route, I don’t think it warrants assault or even an argument.
Oher was cited for misdemeanor assault without a set court date.
