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.

49ers-Eagles snap count: Aaron Lynch emerges, whole lot of offense, whole lot of base defense

Sep 29 2014 8:30am CDT | Source: ninersnation

The San Francisco 49ers snap count reflected some surprises, and some expected results. Aaron Lynch took over Corey Lemonier's nickel DE role. The 49ers spent a lot of time on offense. And in spite of getting dominated in time of possession, the Eagles still ran a ton of snaps. The San Francisco 49ers put together a a big 26-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and the snap count revea ...

Golden Nuggets: Is this Happening Again?

Monday, September 22, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. Flashback to a year ago, 2013. The 49ers had just lost their first home game and were staring at a miserable 1-2 record. They opened the season well enough with an exciting shootout win over NFC rival Green Bay. That was followed by two bad losses, one to NFC West foe Seattle on the road and another at home to Indianapolis. Now it ...

How 49ers' Penalties Are Ruining San Francisco's 2014 Season

Sep 21 2014 10:23pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There are plenty of problems when evaluating the San Francisco 49ers' start to the 2014 season. The lofty number of costly, stupid penalties are right up there at the top. All of these issues have presented a 49ers product that, in the second half of games, is neither fun to watch, nor is it competitive enough to warrant our hopes for another postseason run. Two games against the Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals, respectively, have provided enough evid ...

Vic Fangio provides some insight into Corey Lemonier skills, usage

Sep 19 2014 12:05pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The San Francisco 49ers pass rush has been a significant question mark through the first two games. Corey Lemonier and Ahmad Brooks rank at the bottom of Pro Football Focus's OLB rankings, and even without their grading system, we could figure out that they have struggled thus far. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio spoke to the media on Thursday, and he was asked about Lemonier in particular. He ...

How much will 49ers pass rush impact Week 3?

Sep 18 2014 12:55pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The San Francisco 49ers pass rush has been problematic through the first two weeks. Will we see any improvement in Week 3? If not, what can we expect from Drew Stanton? One of the many 49ers story lines coming out of the first two weeks has been the lack of a consistent pass rush. Justin Smith and Aaron Lynch have done some solid work, but that has not been enough to overcome the lack of it from Ahmad Brooks and Corey Lemonie ...

Breaking Down 49ers' Penalty Issues After Loss in Home Opener

Sep 15 2014 6:31pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Head coach Jim Harbaugh put it best after the San Francisco 49ers' 28-20 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. It was a collapse from all angles. Four turnovers, 118 penalty yards, three drives into the red zone that did not end in a touchdown...it all added up to blowing a 17-point lead in the regular-season opener at Levi's Stadium. Of all San Francisco's mistakes, the penalties ...

49ers vs. Cowboys: Looking at Carlos Hyde Runs, Joe Looney's 'holding' penalty and more

We've got some gifs of Carlos Hyde, Joe Looney, Ahmad Brooks and more from Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys. So, I've been stepping up my gif production this season.

49ers vs. Cowboys: Examining San Francisco's allowed sack [GIF]

Sep 9 2014 6:00pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

We're not ... we're not positive what Mike Iupati was supposed to be doing here. The San Francisco 49ers have some pretty significant issues along the offensive line. The defensive line isn't in a dire position itself, but the pass-rush also has some question marks. Against the Dallas Cowboys, both lines had their faults. Last season, I made some gifs and did some breakdowns of the sacks allowed by the 49ers, ...
