49ers star pass rusher Charles Omenihu arrested on domestic violence charges
San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Charles Omenihu was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence Monday.
According to reports, police were called by a female who claimed her boyfriend pushed her to the ground during an argument. There were no visible injuries observed on the woman, who did complain of pain in her arm, but declined medical attention.
The case will be submitted to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office for possible charges.
“We are aware of the matter involving Charles Omenihu and are in the process of gathering further information,” the 49ers said in a statement.
Omenihu, 25, is a key member of the team’s defensive line rotation and has 4.5 sacks this season.
