Prosecutors have dismissed assault charges against Michael Oher that resulted from an incident with an Uber driver in Nashville, Tennessee back in April.

The offensive tackle, who most recently played for the Carolina Panthers, was originally charged with misdemeanor assault for the incident, but the case was dismissed on Tuesday, according to The Tennessean. (RELATED: Carolina Panthers Tackle Michael Oher Charged With Assault)

Oher was facing assault charges for allegedly kicking the Uber driver during a dispute about a fare. The matter was solved through an agreement with the alleged victim in General Sessions Court, according to Davidson County District Attorney spokeswoman Dorinda Carter.

The former Tennessee Titan, who many know as the subject of the book “The Blindside: The Evolution of a Game.” The popular book, later made into a motion picture, tells Oher’s own life story from a homeless childhood to the NFL draft.

Oher was released by the Carolina Panthers in July after a failed physical designation. He has been on the NFL’s concussion protocol since September.
