San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver was arrested in San Jose on Friday afternoon for felony hit-and-run and weapons possession, according to a report by KTVU.

The report indicates that Culliver's vehicle struck a bicyclist and then fled the scene. An eyewitness cornered the vehicle, where authorities claim that Culliver got out of his car, threatened the driver with brass knuckles, got back in his car, and left the scene while also hitting the person's car.

Culliver has been booked for "felony hit and run for striking the bicyclist, reckless driving causing an injury, felony possession of brass knuckles and misdemeanor hit and run for the striking the vehicle."

The 49ers released the following statement on this incident:

"The 49ers organization is aware of the recent matter involving Chris Culliver. We will remain in contact with Chris and the local authorities as we continue to gather the facts regarding this situation. As this is an ongoing legal matter, we will reserve further comment at this time."

Culliver spent the entire 2013 season on the injured reserve as he tore his ACL in training camp. His last game was during the Super Bowl where he is remembered for making comments about gays prior to the game. He was originally a third-round draft pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
