Panthers OT Oher to appear in court June 6 on assault charge

Michael Oher has been booked and released from a Nashville jail on a misdemeanor assault charge, The Tennessean reported Tuesday.

Oher is accused of assaulting the driver following a dispute which began during the ride given by the Uber drive. They told the driver to follow another vehicle to the restaurant, but the Uber driver noted that the lead auto seemed to be lost.

Investigators say the driver told officers that he felt the lead auto wasn't sure where they were going, so he suggested they take the lead.

Two people in the vehicle needed to use the restroom, so the driver pulled over at a gas station.

The driver eventually got out of the auto and confronted Oher, who then allegedly shoved the driver to the ground.

The driver admitted to putting his hands on Oher's face. "[The driver] also claimed that [Oher] then kicked him in the leg while he was on the ground". At that time Oher, who was sitting up front, got out and confronted the driver.

Oher was a 1st round draft pick of the Baltimore Ravens in 2009.

He is a former Tennessee Titan and widely known as the subject in the hit movie "The Blind Side".

The Panthers last week said they were aware of the incident, but had no further comment.
