'Blind Side' Inspiration Michael Oher Accused of Assaulting Uber Driver

Michael Oher – the NFL football player and inspiration behind the 2009 film The Blind Side – is being accused of assaulting an Uber driver in Nashville, Tennessee.

The 30-year-old Carolina Panthers player has been issued a misdemeanor citation from the Nashville Police Department, People mag reports.

The Uber driver claims that on April 14, he picked Michael a few of his friends up before getting into an argument.

The citation reports that Michael and the driver got into a fight outside of the car, where the driver put his hands on Michael‘s face, but the football player pushed him down and kicked him in the leg before his friends restrained him.

Michael was allegedly suspected of being under the influence of alcohol, but a breathalyzer was not used.

Michael has been ordered to appearing for booking on May 8, and has not yet issued a plea.

Sandra Bullock won an Oscar for her role as Michael‘s adopted mother in The Blind Side, as Michael was portrayed by Quinton Aaron.
