According to Tracey Kaplan of the San Jose Mercury News, a warrant for the arrest of 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks has been put on hold as the district attorneys office works to figure out whether he should be charged with a felony, misdemeanor, or not at all after he allegedly hit teammate Lamar Divens in the head with a beer bottle three times and then punched him. The argument was reportedly over car keys and occurred outside of Brooks’ San Jose home.  Divens was bloodied and ended up needing three stitches to close the wound left on his head. At the time, Divens said he wanted to press charges, but he has since changed his mind, according to the warrant application. The alleged attack was also witnessed by two other unidentified team members, one of whom gave a recorded statement to police.   The decision by District Attorney Jeff Rosen over whether to pursue the case as line prosecutors desire could have a major impact on Brooks’ career and team, which is set to move to Santa Clara next year. Brooks, now 29, signed a six-year contract extension last year worth $44.5 million, with $17.5 million guaranteed. This season, he helped clinch the NFC Championship by knocking down a key third-down pass to thwart an Atlanta Falcons’ drive in the 49ers’ 28-24 win Jan. 20.   Need NFL Tickets?
