defensive end Charles Omenihu has been arrested on charges of misdemeanor domestic violence, the San Jose (CA) Police Department announced.  The alleged incident with his

girlfriend, police said, features the woman charging at Omenihu, who allegedly pushed her to the ground during an argument.  "We are aware of the matter involving Charles

Omenihu and are in the process of gathering further information," the 49ers said in a statement on Tuesday. Officers said that they did not "observe any visible physical

injuries," though she did complain of pain in her arm.  According to the police report, Omenihu gave a statement and was cooperative with officers. Omenihu posted bail

and is no longer in custody, but he was served with an emergency protective restraining order. Once a fifth-round pick of the Texans in 2019, Omenihu was traded to the 49ers

in 2021 after three seasons in Houston. This season with San Francisco, Omenihu started three games, amassing 20 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 16 QB hits, and three tackles for

loss. The 49ers are set to take on the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game this weekend.  You can follow Matt Galatzan on Twitter @MattGalatzan Want
