NFL Conference Championship - San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Charles Omenihu was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence on Monday, according to a report released by the San Jose Police Department.  

Police arrived after a female, who the release identified as Omenihu's girlfriend, called to report Omenihu pushed her to the ground during an argument. No physical injuries were observed and all medical attention was denied. Omenihu was reportedly cooperative during the investigation and was taken into custody for misdemeanor domestic violence. He has since posted bail.

"We are aware of the matter involving Charles Omenihu and are in the process of gathering further information," the 49ers said in a statement, via ESPN.

Omenihu has played 53.5% of all defensive snaps for the 49ers this season, second to only Nick Bosa among San Francisco's defensive linemen. Omenihu is currently day-to-day with an oblique injury, but 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan expected him to be available to play Monday prior to news of his arrest.
