The San Francisco 49ers released a cornerback following his arrest on domestic violence charges. According to police, the man faces a felony charge. He left the Santa Clara County jail after posting a $50,000 bail.
Police responded to a home in Santa Clara county to investigate a report of a domestic assault. When they arrived, they found a woman who had marks around her neck. The injuries were consistent with an attempted strangulation.
The man and woman shared a home, and have two children together. Because the woman was holding one of the children at the time of the assault, the man also faces child endangerment charges. In addition to facing criminal charges, the player may also face sanctions under the NFL’s personal conduct policy.
