Former NFL running back Frank Gore has been charged with assault after allegedly attacking a naked woman and dragging her by her hair down the hallway of an Atlantic City hotel, according to a report.
Atlantic City Police announced on Tuesday that Gore, 39, had been charged with one count of simple assault connected to an alleged incident of domestic violence July 31 at the Tropicana Atlantic City.
Police arrived at the hotel around 8:11 a.m. after receiving a report of a domestic violence dispute and found a 28-year-old Miami woman speaking with hotel security.
The woman “did not exhibit signs of injury” and no complaint was filed at the time, but police said an “ensuing investigation” led to the simple assault charges against Gore .
