Justice is coming for Michael Oher.
Michael Oher, a starting offensive tackle for the Carolina Panthers, has had some trouble with the law of late. The player who inspired the film “The Blind Side” allegedly got into a fight with an Uber driver and is facing charges.
Oher will be in a Nashville, TN court on June 6 in a hearing on the alleged assault. He was officially arrested, but not incarcerated for an event that took place on April 14. The Uber driver alleges Oher knocked him to the ground and then “kicked him in the leg while he was on the ground,” according to David Newton, ESPN Staff Writer.

Oher’s time in Carolina has been bumpy. He helped the team to a Super Bowl appearance but suffered a concussion last season that kept him out of most of the team’s games. He is a starting left tackle, but with the addition of Matt Kalil he’s likely to move to right tackle. Oher has played on three teams, has been to two Super Bowls and won one ring with the Baltimore Ravens. He’s had injury concerns the last few seasons, having broken down in for the Tennessee Titans and now having concussion concerns.
Is Oher’s future in jeopardy, or is he still one of the best tackles in the game?
