SAN FRANCISCO >> The Santa Clara County District Attorney's office says it won't pursue assault charges against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks because of insufficient evidence in the case.

Assistant District Attorney Karyn Sinunu-Towery said Thursday that Brooks will not face prosecution after further investigation into allegations that Brooks repeatedly hit a teammate on the head with a beer bottle in a June incident.

The district attorney's office said early this month there was no arrest warrant for Brooks after one initially had been filed erroneously.

According to police, Brooks hit teammate Lamar Divens with the bottle three times and then punched him in the face during an early morning argument on June 8. The alleged attack left Divens with a 3-inch cut on his forehead, according to police statements.
