    Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that the Santa Clara District Attorney’s office is “close” to ending their debate about whether or not to charge Brooks for assaulting nose tackle Lamar Divens after Divens told Brooks that he was too drunk to drive home. Divens initially moved to press charges and two other 49ers players gave statements to the police, but Divens changed his mind and left the decision up to prosecutors.

    “The case is not done,” assistant district attorney Karyn Sinunu-Towery said on Wednesday. “And that’s where we are.”

    As with any player wrapped up in legal trouble, Brooks could face discipline from the league as a result of the incident. It’s much too premature to start thinking about that possibility, which allows the 49ers to issue a boilerplate statement about the issue for the time being.

    Santa Clara prosecutor weighs possible charges against Ahmad Brooks
    Nose tackle Lamar Divens required three stitches after Brooks hit Divens three times in the head and punched Divens in the face after an argument over car keys. Divens thought Brooks was too drunk to drive, and Brooks violently disagreed.

    Per the report, Brooks yelled to Divens while striking him, “Do I need to get my [expletive] gun?”

    Divens initially wanted to press charges, but he has since changed his mind, telling police that pushing the issue “would be bad for both of their careers”

    Interesting spin on the drunk driving topic. Tough position for Divens to be in...

    Yeah, definitely. He's trying to do the right thing and gets his butt whooped. Now he's probably getting dirty looks from teammates because he, a JAG, may get one of their Pro Bowl caliber LBs suspended for a good part of the season.

    If this indeed what happened, Goodell must come down hard on Brooks. The guy(Divens) tried to do the right thing and was assaulted by Brooks because of it. This would be a good opportunity for Goodell to make a strong point particularly on the heels of all the recent DUI arrests.

    What an idiot.

    I think DUIs should be punished more severely than PEDs, or at least on par with PEDs.

    These guys have more than enough resources available to get home safe.

    If that is the quality of the personalities on NFL teams right now, then the league is in a lot more trouble than I thought.

    to me, this is no big deal. it happens quite a bit actually. when the drunk guy sobers up, he apologizes, treats his bud to a meal, pays for the stitches....and maybe even lets the friend punch him anywhere to break even. the good thing, a drunk person did not get behind the wheel.
