In a press release from the Atlantic City Police Department issued Tuesday, Gore, 39, was charged with simple assault over the apparent domestic violence incident, which involved a 28-year-old female.
“On July 31, 2022, at 8:11 AM, patrol units were dispatched to Tropicana Atlantic City for a report of a domestic violence dispute,” the press release said. “Officers arrived to find the victim, a 28-year-old woman from Miami Florida, speaking with hotel security. The victim did not exhibit signs of injury and complaints were not filed at the time.”
“However, an ensuing investigation resulted in Franklin Gore being charged with simple assault related to the domestic violence incident,” the department added.
According to police documents viewed by TMZ Sports, Gore allegedly “forcibly” grabbed the victim by the hair before “violently dragging her nude person along the floor of the 59th hallway.”
The former San Francisco 49er has been issued a summons pending a future court date, police said.
“The LVMPD (Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department) conducted a vehicle stop at Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue (near Wyoming and Las Vegas Blvd) on a driver, later identified as Marshawn Lynch, for suspected driver impairment,” the LVMPD posted Tuesday.
“Through the course of the investigation, officers determined that Lynch was impaired and conducted an arrest,” the department added. “Lynch was transported to the Las Vegas City Jail and booked for driving under the influence.”
While past analysis shows that NFL players have a lower arrest rate on average than similarly aged men in the U.S. general public, they do have higher rates of arrest in specific areas, including domestic violence.
“Approximately 7 percent of the people who played in the NFL between 2000 and 2014 were arrested, according to a CNS analysis, a lower arrest rate than the group of similarly aged men in the U.S. general population,” CNS Maryland reported. “When compared with U.S. men aged 21-34, NFL players were disproportionately arrested and charged with domestic violence, sex offenses, murder and weapons-related crimes. Those crimes accounted for a much larger portion of total arrests in the NFL.”
