Former NFL running back Frank Gore violently dragged a naked woman through a hotel hallway in Atlantic City, according to police.
Cops said Gore “forcibly” grabbed the 28-year-old woman by her hair and hauled her away, TMZ reported.
The incident occurred in the early morning hours of July 31 at the Tropicana Casino and Resort, Atlantic City police said in an alert.
“The victim did not exhibit signs of injury and complaints were not filed at the time,” police said. “However, an ensuing investigation resulted in Franklin Gore being charged with simple assault related to the domestic violence incident.”
A hearing is scheduled for October, according to TMZ.
Gore, 39, played 16 seasons in the NFL, spending his final year with the Jets in 2020. He ranks third in NFL history with 16,000 career rushing yards.
