NFL legend Frank Gore has been hit with an assault charge … after cops say he was involved in a domestic violence incident with a 28-year-old woman last month.
The Atlantic City Police Dept. tells TMZ Sports … back on July 31 at around 8:11 a.m., officers were called to the Tropicana Atlantic City in New Jersey regarding a report of a domestic violence dispute.
Cops say a 28-year-old woman, who they did not identify, was speaking with hotel security … but “did not exhibit signs of injury and complaints were not filed at the time.”
Police, though, say after an investigation was launched … Gore was ultimately charged this week with simple assault “related to the domestic violence incident.”
No further details regarding the allegations were revealed.
According to court records, the 39-year-old former San Francisco 49ers superstar is due for a hearing on the matter in mid-October.
Gore is widely considered one of the greatest NFL running backs ever — he played 16 seasons in the league, and rushed for 16,000 yards … the third-most all-time.
Since he last played in the 2020 season, Gore has become a boxer. In his first fight in 2021 with ex-NBA star Deron Williams, he lost via split decision. He later recorded a highlight real knockout in his second-ever fight against Yaya Olorunsola earlier this year.
