SANTA CLARA, Calif. –San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Charles Omenihu will be available for the Nationals final game, despite being arrested in connection with an allegation of misdemeanor domestic violence.

Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday the team will wait for the end of legal proceedings after Omenihu was accused of shoving his girlfriend to the ground during an argument Monday.

“He’ll play if he’s healthy,” Shanahan said. We have analyzed the situation for the last 48 hours, not necessarily me, but other people. We trust the judicial process and do not believe in removing it from the team at this time. »

San Jose police say they were called to Omenihu’s home Monday afternoon to investigate an incident of domestic violence.

The officers did not notice any visible physical injuries, but the woman complained of pain in her arm. She refused to seek medical attention.

The 49ers player was jailed at the Santa Clara County Main Jail for misdemeanor domestic violence. Omenihu was released after posting bail.

The 25-year-old Omenihu is in his second season with the 49ers and his fifth in the NFL.

He set a career-high four and a half sacks this season, then added two sacks in the playoff win against Seattle on January 14.
