Former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock has been charged with felony domestic violence and misdemeanor child endangerment, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Bay Area and Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.

According to Branch, the domestic violence charge stemmed from Brock "allegedly punching and trying to strangle his girlfriend," while he was charged with child endangerment because his girlfriend was holding their one-year-old child during the alleged assault.

Maiocco reported that Brock is facing up to five years in prison.

Per Branch, the pair were arguing about what to watch on television when Brock "allegedly hit her in the face" and "attempted to strangle her to point she later vomited." Branch added that Brock's girlfriend also said Brock "attempted to strangle her multiple times" five days before his arrest.

On April 7, A.J. Perez of USA Today reported that on the night of April 6 Santa Clara police officers "responded to a report of domestic violence around 9:35 p.m." and found the woman Brock was dating had "visible facial injuries."

Brock, 28, was released by the Niners—where he had spent the entirety of his seven-year career—a day after his arrest.
