49ers DE Charles Omenihu arrested after domestic violence allegation

Jan 24, 2023 at 8:56 AM--



San Francisco 49ers defensive end Charles Omenihu has been arrested in San Jose following allegations of domestic violence. The Mercury News reported that police were called to the player's home in San Jose, and the 25-year-old was booked at the Santa Clara County jail and then released after posting bail.

"Police officers were called to Omenihu's home in the 300 block of Santana Row at 4:39 p.m. for a report of domestic violence," wrote Robert Salonga of the Mercury News. "Upon arriving, a woman told officers that Omenihu is her boyfriend and that he 'pushed her to the ground during an argument.'

"A police news release stated that the woman complained of arm pain but that 'officers did not observe any visible physical injuries,' and that she declined medical attention."

Omenihu was at the location when officers arrived and was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence. The police obtained an emergency protective order for the alleged victim. It was served to the 49ers defensive end.

"We are aware of the matter involving Charles Omenihu and are in the process of gathering further information," the 49ers said via a statement issued by the team.

The 49ers are preparing to face the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Omenihu arrived at the 49ers via a trade from the Houston Texans on November 2, 2021. During the regular season, he registered career-highs in tackles (20) and sacks (4.5).

Omenihu recorded two sacks in San Francisco's first playoff game, a Wild Card win over the Seattle Seahawks. He played 15 defensive snaps against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said the defensive end was day-to-day this week due to an oblique strain.

The NFL released the following statement regarding the Omenihu situation: "The matter will be reviewed under the league's personal conduct policy. There is no change to his status."

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he

San Francisco 49ers center Jake Brendel went from being undrafted to the starting center of the 49ers. He ranked 11th in blocking amongst 50 centers in NFL, per Pro Football Focus. In his first entire season as a starter, Brendel has given up 14 pressures (one sack, three hits, and ten hurries). He had the opportunity of snapping the ball to not one, not two, not three, but four quarterbacks during the same season. Jake is unique, memorable, and, most important, a trustworthy person to have on a championship team. Brendel will become one of the 23 unrestricted free agents for the San Francisco 49ers. In his most recent interview, he stated that he has a family and is ready to take on free agency. "You still got to hit free agency and see what that is, and I have
