49ers’ Omenihu arrested on domestic violence in San Jose

SAN JOSE — San Francisco 49ers’ defensive lineman Charles Omenihu was arrested Monday afternoon on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence after police were called out to his San Jose home, police said.

Omenihu, 25, was booked at the Santa Clara County jail and then released after posting bail, according to San Jose police.

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. 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, who was still at the location when officers arrived, gave a statement to police and was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence. Police also obtained an emergency protective order for the woman, and they served that on Omenihu.

Police said the results of the ongoing investigation will be presented to the Santa Clara County District Attorney for evaluation of possible charges. No additional details were released.

Omenihu has been a key reserve for the 49ers, who are headed to Philadelphia to play the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line.

Omenihu is having a career-best season in his first full season with the 49ers, who acquired him in a trade with the Houston Texans on Nov. 2, 2021. He has appeared in every game this season and started three, mainly as a defensive end but also as an interior rusher on passing downs.
