Coming off a Super Bowl loss, 49ers players probably have a little extra anger this offseason to use as motivation. It appears that linebacker Ahmad Brooks may just be angry, period.
Brooks hit teammate Lamar Divens over the head with a beer bottle three times during a June 8 incident outside Brooks’ home in San Jose, Calif., according to the San Jose Mercury News and court documents. The altercation left Divens bloodied and took three stitches to repair.
The incident occurred after a night of drinking, when Brooks — who had been driven home by Divens after a night of drinking — asked for his keys back, according to the Mercury News. Divens pretended to throw the keys away from Brooks, and then was about to hand them over before being hit by Brooks’ beer bottle.
Brooks struck Divens once again and allegedly screamed “Do I need to get my [expletive] gun?” before hitting Divens a third time.
At the time, Divens wanted to press charges but later told police he wanted to “drop it.” However, the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office is still considering filing charges against Brooks, even going so far to obtain a warrant, which has currently been put on hold.
