NFL: 49ers' Ahmad Brooks Allegedly Assaults Teammate

San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks allegedly assaulted his teammate Lamar Divens.

San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks allegedly assaulted his teammate, nose tackle Lamar Divens

According to the San Francisco Examiner's Mike Aldax, Brooks used a beer bottle to bash Divens on the head thrice and then punched him while Brooks was in a drunken stupor in his San Jose residence last month. 

Aldax reports two other teammates, who were unnamed, were witnesses to the incident which occurred at on June 8 at 2 a.m. at Brooks' five-bedroom home. Their night out included a trip to San Jose's Club Agenda. At one point, Divens was said to have told Brooks "to get home to his kids" which set off some playful trash talking. 

Divens then drove Brooks' truck on the way to the outside linebacker's home as he was "very intoxicated." At one point, Divens jokingly pretended to throw Brooks' car keys onto the grass when he asked for them. That was when the alleged beer bottle bashing incident took place, per Aldax. 

NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal writes Divens initially wanted to press charges, but he had a change of heart five days afterward. This was indicated in court documents obtained by the San Jose Mercury News

"He said this would be bad for both of their careers and that he just wanted to keep playing and that they had resolved it."

Prosecutors turned in an application for an arrest warrant on a felony assault charge with great bodily injury to Judge Sharon Chatman, which she signed, the case was put on hold a day later, per Rosenthal. 

The San Francisco Examiner maintains Divens "had a 3-inch laceration on the left side of his forehead, and blood covered his shirt and spilled in his car, according to police." 

Rosenthal then posted an update dated July 3 via the Associated Press saying the arrest warrant was shelved at the request of prosecutors.  

Prior to the shelving of the arrest warrant, the San Francisco 49ers organization released a statement about the incident. 

"We are aware of the situation involving Ahmad Brooks. Out of respect for the legal process, the club will have no further comment at this time."

Brooks amassed 24.5 sacks over a four-year span. In the last 32 regular season games, he has 96 tackles, 13.5 sacks and returned an interception 50 yards for a touchdown.

Meet Corey Lemonier, the San Francisco 49er OLB Set to Break out This Summer

Arizona Cardinals v San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers are simultaneously loaded and uncertain at the linebacker position.  With a foursome of Aldon Smith, NaVorro Bowman, Patrick Willis and Ahmad Brooks, the 49ers boast one of the better collections of linebacking talent in NFL history, much less the current league. In 2014, however, that corps will be tested.  Bowman is recovering from the knee injury he suffered in the NFC Championship Game.  Smith will almost assuredly miss time due to a suspension from the NFL for his ...

Ahmad Brooks of the New York Giants pose
The Richard Sherman-Michael Crabtree has drawn in another member of the San Francisco 49ers. Ahmad Brooks had some comments about it on Twitter. I know many of you are getting sick and tired of Richard Sherman, and particularly discussing Richard Sherman here at Niners Nation. And yet, things keep happening with this guy. Sherman is a talented cornerback, who backed up his previous trash talk with a fantastic 2013 season. And yet, somehow he can't keep his mouth shut a ...

The San Francisco 49ers are 96 days away from their season opener against the Dallas Cowboys. We take a look at the current No. 96 on the 49ers roster. I was poking around the Internet earlier today, and I stumbled across something at Pro Football Reference. The site actually has a database for player unifom numbers. You can search a team for any given uniform number and see the history of players who have worn it. I don't know how long they've had it, but ...
