SAN FRANCISCO — The Santa Clara District Attorney's Office says it erroneously filed an arrest warrant for 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks after allegations that he hit a teammate on the head with a beer bottle.
Assistant District Attorney Karyn Sinunu-Towery said Wednesday that the office is still investigating and will decide next week whether or not to bring charges.
She said there is no outstanding arrest warrant.
Prosecutors filed the warrant in error on Thursday. According to police, Brooks hit teammate Lamar Divens with the bottle three times and punched him in the face on June 8.
A person who answered the telephone at a number listed for Brooks referred comment to the 49ers. The team said in an email that it was aware of the situation, but would not comment.
