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.

Rebuilds are about to receive a kick start and contenders are about to boost their title chances in the waning hours before the 2014 NFL trade deadline. Of course, the rumor mill is on fire. There are sellers who clearly have an eye on next year. Who can blame the Oakland Raiders, Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and more for waving the white flag at the halfway point of the season? There are potential buyers—such as the New England Patriots—th ...

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 going through each positi ...

Oct 20 2014 5:42pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The San Francisco 49ers now have two full weeks to heal and regroup after suffering an embarrassing 42-17 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football. One might throw up his or her hands and simply admit the season is lost after this ugly defeat. But the 49ers have some promising times ahead on the horizon. The first of these will be San Francisco's Week 8 bye—a rest period that will be a welcomed relief and a chance to shore up some of ...

Kaepernick, 49ers rally for third straight win

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, ...

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 with another GIF dump post. Last w ...

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 ...

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio met with the media on Thursday. He discussed Aaron Lynch, facing Alex Smith, the challenge of Jamaal Charles and more. Here's your transcript. What went into the decision to play LB Aaron Lynch so much more? And how do you use him? Is it similarly to the way you use LB Aldon Smith? Is it a little different? "Well, the decision was, he had been playing a lot in the first three games anyway. And this g ...

49ers vs. Eagles breakdowns: GIFs of Aaron Lynch's big day, Stevie Johnson's touchdown and more

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 going to be a little less direction. I plan on on ...
