NEW JERSEY (KGO) — Former 49ers running back Frank Gore faces assault charges in New Jersey after police responded to a July 31 call.

Police say a woman called them after the incident and officers were then dispatched to the Tropicana Casino Havana Tower in Atlantic City. The 28-year-old showed no signs of injury and made no complaints at the time.

An investigation later led to the running back being charged with ‘common assault’ in relation to the ‘domestic violence incident’.
