Bad news coming out of New Jersey. On Tuesday night, TMZ reported that former 49ers running back Frank Gore was charged with assault.
According to the report, it stemmed from a report of a domestic violence incident with a 28-year-old woman last month in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
On Wednesday, disturbing details emerged, with TMZ reporting that court documents say Gore grabbed the naked women by her hair and dragged her across a hotel room’s hallway.
Here’s the original report:
The Atlantic City Police Dept. tells TMZ Sports… back on July 31 at around 8:11 a.m., officers were called to the Tropicana Atlantic City in New Jersey regarding a report of a domestic violence dispute.
Cops say a 28-year-old woman, who they did not identify, was speaking with hotel security … but ‘did not exhibit signs of injury and complaints were not filed at the time.’
Police, though, say after an investigation was launched … Gore was ultimately charged this week with simple assault ‘related to the domestic violence incident.’
According to TMZ, Gore is due in court for a hearing in October.
