Frank Gore charged with common assault in alleged domestic violence dispute
Former NFL running back Frank Gore is facing simple assault charges stemming from an alleged domestic violence dispute, reports TMZ Sports.
Atlantic City police report authorities were called to the Havana Tower at the Tropicana Casino on the morning of July 31. They arrived to find a 28-year-old woman talking to hotel security.
“The victim showed no signs of injury and no complaint was filed at the time,” police said in court documents. “However, a subsequent investigation resulted in Franklin Gore being charged with common assault in connection with the domestic violence incident.”
Gore is accused of “forcibly” grabbing the woman by the hair and “violently dragging her naked person across the floor of the 59th hallway”.
In June, Gore signed a one-day contract to retire with the 49ers, and the team announced he would be inducted into its Hall of Fame.
Gore, 39, also played for the Colts, Dolphins, Bills and Jets during his 16 seasons. He has 16,000 career rushing yards, the third most in NFL history.
He has since turned to boxing and won his last fight in May beating Yaya Olorunsola.
