San Francisco 49ers: Ahmad Brooks Not Charged in Childish Assault Case Involving Glass Bottle
On June 8th, San Francisco 49ers teammates Ahmad Brooks and Lamar Divens were out with some friends at a bar enjoying their night. Early the next morning as they arrived back at Brooks’ house from their night out, an absurd altercation quickly emerged.
Brooks was said to be intoxicated at the moment and as the incident grew more serious, he was said to have threatened Divens to get a gun.
According to the report, Divens pretended to throw Brooks’ keys into the grass while holding them still in his hand. Brooks allegedly attacked Divens and repeatedly smashed a glass bottle over his teammate’s head, resulting in three stitches.
Thursday, the Santa Clara County district attorney’s office announced that it will not in fact pursue charges against Brooks due to ‘insufficient evidence.’
District attorney Jeff Rosen commented on the matter:
“I have reviewed the memo and agree with its conclusion. Cases are not always what they first appear. The value to a thorough and deliberate investigation is a more complete picture of the facts.
“We cannot prosecute this case because we cannot prove the crime beyond a reasonable doubt to 12 jurors. To file criminal charges when we do not believe we will obtain a conviction is wrong.”
Brooks is coming off his fifth season with San Francisco, having started every game for the 49ers in 2012. As of right now, it is expected he will remain the starter as there has not been any suspension given yet. The team better hope he straightens his actions out before the beginning of the season, as they have enormous goals ahead of them.
