Atlantic City, NJ – One of the greatest running backs in National Football League (NFL) history was arrested after he was accused of dragging a naked woman down a hallway by her hair in an Atlantic City hotel last month.
Police said the incident occurred in the early morning hours of July 31 on the 59th floor of the Tropicana Casino’s Havana Tower, TMZ reported.
Charging documents said Gore “forcibly” grabbed his victim by her hair before “violently dragging her nude person along the floor of the 59th hallway.”
Police were called to the hotel at about 8:11 a.m., TMZ reported.
Officers talked to the woman but did not arrest Gore at the scene because the victim “did not exhibit signs of injury.”
The case was turned over to Atlantic City police investigators and after further investigation, Atlantic City police issued a warrant for the former NFL player’s arrest on simple assault charges, according to TMZ.
Court records showed that Gore is scheduled to next appear in court in October.
The 39-year-old former NFL running back played for the San Francisco 49ers, the Indianapolis Colts, the Miami Dolphins, the Buffalo Bills, and the New York Jets during his career, TMZ reported.
He rushed for 16,000 yards in his 16-year career and is the third all-time in rushing yards, coming in just behind Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith, the New York Post reported.
Gore last played for the Jets in 2020 but signed a one-day contract so he could retire from the NFL as a San Francisco 49er in June, according to Bleacher Report.
He switched to celebrity boxing and lost a split decision to former National Basketball League (NBA) star Deron Williams in December of 2021.
Gore won his personal boxing debut against Yaya Olorunsola in May, Bleacher Report reported.
