Lawsuit accuses 49ers' Brooks of groping unconscious woman

A woman is accusing San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks of groping her while she was unconscious at the home of former teammate Ray McDonald.

In a civil lawsuit filed Tuesday in Santa Clara County, the woman says she believes surveillance footage will corroborate her allegations against Brooks. The woman says Brooks groped her before McDonald carried her upstairs to his bedroom and sexually assaulted her in December 2014.

McDonald has sued the woman for defamation, saying security camera footage would show a consensual sexual encounter occurred in his hot tub.

The 49ers cut McDonald after learning of the allegation. The Santa Clara County district attorney is considering whether to file criminal charges.

A call to McDonald's attorney was not returned. It was not immediately clear whether Brooks had an attorney.
