NFL: 49ers' Ahmad Brooks Allegedly Assaults Teammate

Jul 3 2013, 6:43pm CDT | by

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.

Nov 4 2014 11:24am CST | Source: ninersnation

The 49ers reportedly tried to trade linebacker Ahmad Brooks before the trade deadline. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio does not buy the report. We take a look at his comments. Vic Fangio made his weekly KNBR appearance Tuesday morning, and he had a chance to comment on the weekend report that Ahmad Brooks was almost traded. Over the weekend, Jay Glazer reported that a deal was almost done, but the San Francisco 49ers backed out late in discussions. Glazer said a mid-round ...

49ers mid-season review: Outside linebackers

Oct 27 2014 4:20pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The first of the season for the 49ers outside linebacker position saw the emergence of Aaron Lynch, and some regression from Ahmad Brooks. How will it shake out once Aldon returns? The San Francisco 49ers are closing in on the end of their bye week, and will be returning to practice on Monday. We are not exactly halfway through the season, but the timing of the bye is close enough that it makes sense to take a look at where everything stands. We will be goin ...

Kaepernick, 49ers rally for third straight win

Oct 13 2014 10:57pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

ST. LOUIS – The San Francisco 49ers defence got beat early by unfamiliar plays and Austin Davis calling the signals. "No disrespect, but I didn’t know who their quarterback was," linebacker Ahmad Brooks said. "We got some good pressure on him. That helped us." Davis was sacked five times, twice each by Brooks and Dan Skuta. They carried the day, keeping the St. Louis Rams offence stalled, and giving Colin Kaepernick a chance to warm up in a 31-17 v ...

49ers vs. Chiefs breakdown: Sacks, tipped passes, Aaron Lynch and more in GIF form

Oct 9 2014 6:30pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

We take a look at some sacks allowed, some tipped passes, AARON LYNCH and some other stuff from the 49ers vs. Chiefs game. Earlier this week, I tried something a little different with my first GIF post, taking a look at a single failed drive. I've been doing posts breaking down the sacks each week and two of the three sacks happened to be on that drive, so they were covered there. But now, with a third sack, I have an excuse to roll wit ...

Golden Nuggets: Violent fans get charged for Levi's bathroom assault

Oct 9 2014 4:00am CDT | Source: ninersnation

Thursday, October 9, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. You know, it really feels like we're back in the off season this morning with some grim and generally unappealing links on tap. For those of you that hadn't heard, (like me) there was an assault right before kickoff against the Chiefs last Sunday, where two brothers assaulted a man over a bathroom stall. Yeah I know, sad and pathetic. ...

Aaron Lynch is coming along pretty nicely. Nick Foles isn't too happy about it. It's time for more GIFs! Each week I've been doing something of a "GIF dump" post in which I group together a bunch of GIFs I make from the last San Francisco 49ers games that didn't get their own posts. On Wednesday, I had a post on the sacks allowed by the offensive line, but today, there's ...
