The San Jose Mercury News just reported the Santa Clara County District Attorney could charge Ahmad Brooks with felony assault, although the charge could be reduced to a misdemeanor or dropped entirely.
According to the Mercury News’ report, Brooks and Lamar Divens and a few other unspecified 49ers were out drinking in San Jose the night of June 7. Divens drove Brooks home around 2 a.m., and when he dropped Brooks off, Divens allegedly pretended to throw Brooks’ keys into the bushes before handing them to the linebacker. Then, Brooks allegedly hit Divens in the head with a bottle, punched him a few times and said, “Do I need to get my [expletive] gun?”
The Mercury News reports Divens phoned the police a few days after the incident and said he wanted to drop it.
How do you think this will play out?
