San Francisco 49ers defensive end Charles Omenihu, 25, is arrested for misdemeanor domestic violence after ‘pushing his girlfriend to the ground during a fight’ a day after the team’s playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys
The 25-year-old was booked at the Santa Clara County jail, but has since been released after posting bail. The allegation is only a misdemeanor, but Omenihu could still be sentenced to up to a year in prison if convicted.
Officers were called to his home in San Jose on Monday afternoon, when a woman, claiming to be his girlfriend, said he ‘pushed her to the ground during an argument.’
In a department press release, officers say that the woman complained of arm pain, but ‘did not observe any visible physical injuries.’
