The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office hasn't quite decided yet if they'll be pressing charges against San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks for his role in an incident in which Brooks allegedly struck 49ers nose tackle Lamar Divens three times in the head with a beer bottle, then punching him in the face during an argument over car keys outside Brooks' house in San Jose. A felony arrest warrant was issued for Brooks, but some for some reason was put on hold by the DA's office. "It was my mistake," supervising deputy district attorney Luis Ramos said of the premature warrant, via Tracey Kaplan and Mark Emmons of  San Jose Mercury News. It apparently was a filing snafu, but it certainly doesn't mena Brooks is out of the woods by any means. Assistance DA Karyn Sinunu-Towery is the one who'll decide to charge Brooks, and she's armed with witness statements in the case. She says the warrant was recalled only because they're not finished with the investigation. "It was a screw-up," she said, "we're still investigating the case." "This is my call and I am not a fan of football,'' she added. "I think the game is too violent. I got my husband to stop going. I do not care about getting seats (in the new stadium).''
