Defensive lineman Charles Omenihu of the 49ers was arrested Monday on suspicion of domestic violence, Angelina Martin of NBC Sports Bayarea reports. 

Omenihu was booked into the Santa Clara County jail for misdemeanor domestic violence and later released after posting bail, the San Jose Police Department announced in a press release.

Officers were called to Omenihu's San Jose home and met with an adult female, who identified Omenihu as her boyfriend and said he "pushed her to the ground during an argument," according to the release. The woman complained of pain to her arm, though officers did not observe any physical injuries and she declined any medical attention as officers conducted their investigation.

Omenihu remained on scene as officers arrived and was cooperative, the release states. He gave a statement to officers and, based on the victim's statement and complaint of pain, Omenihu was arrested and an emergency protective restraining order was sought and obtained for the victim.

Amid a career-best season, Omenihu and the 49ers are set to play the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. The lineman was acquired via trade by San Francisco from the Houston Texans in November 2021, and he has appeared in every game for the 49ers this season. Omenihu's 4.5 sacks in the regular season were a career high, and he played a pivotal role in last weekend's wild-card win over the Seattle Seahawks with two sacks and a forced fumble.

The 49ers in a statement said they are "aware of the matter involving Charles Omenihu and are in the process of gathering further information."
