San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Charles Omenihu has been arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence. This comes the week before the San Francisco 49ers’ matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2023 NFC Championship Game. Police arrived at a residence that had Omenihu’s girlfriend who claimed the NFL player shoved her to the ground after an argument between the two individuals. Police observed no physical injuries, but the woman did complain about pain in her arm. She declined any medical attention at the scene. In a statement, the 49ers said they are aware of the incident and are gathering more information.

This season with the San Francisco 49ers, Charles Omenihu recorded seven solo tackles, 20 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, one forced fumble, and one pass defended. There is no word if he will be available for the team’s matchup this Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. It may largely depend on the further details that emerge during the week. Omenihu, who is 25, is a key member of the team’s defensive line rotation. The team is set to play at the Eagles on Sunday at three p.m. EST in the 2023 NFC Championship.
