Authorities obtain an arrest warrant for Ahmad Brooks

According to the Associated Press, San Jose uthorities have obtained an arrest warrant for 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks after he allegedly hit teammate Lamar Divens in the head with a beer bottle three times and then punched him in the face.

It was not immediately clear whether the warrant had been served. It was signed by a judge on Thursday.

 

Police statements accompanying the warrant application allege Brooks hit Divens with a beer bottle three times and then punched him in the face during an argument over car keys, causing a 3-inch laceration to his forehead. The alleged incident occurred in front of Brooks’ home early on June 8.

 

Investigators were told Brooks was intoxicated and had threatened to get a gun.

 

A person who picked up the phone at a listing for Brooks referred comment to the 49ers.

The 49ers released a statement earlier today to acknowledge their awareness of the situation.
