In June, 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks allegedly did or didn’t do something that initially had teammate Lamar Divens intent on pressing charges.
Reportedly, Brooks hit Divens in the head with a beer bottle, repeatedly.
But Brooks won’t be prosecuted, because prosecutors fear they won’t be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Brooks hit Divens in the head with a beer bottle, repeatedly.
But Brooks has apologized to the team for whatever he did or didn’t do, repeatedly, and safety Donte Whitner has shared those details publicly.
“He explained the situation,” Whitner said, via CSNBayArea.com. “I gave my input on it and we left it at that. He’s tremendously sorry for what he did. Anybody would be embarrassed and he just has to move on and make he continues to make the right choices from this point forward. He’ll be OK.”
Though prosecution won’t happen to Brooks, punishment from the 49ers apparently is coming.
“It was a bad choice that he made, and he’s going to have to pay for that,” Whitner said. “We don’t know what it’s going to be, yet.”
It should have been prosecution. Amazingly, it won’t be.
