San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has been charged with a felony and two misdemeanours after being arrested for a hit-and-run case involving a cyclist in March.

Culliver was officially charged by the Santa Clara District Attorney's office and he is scheduled to be arraigned at a hearing on Friday.

Culliver was initially arrested on March 28th after the 49er allegedly fled the scene after a hit-and-run accident with a bicyclist.

He also was in illegal possession of brass knuckles that Culliver allegedly threatened a witness with whilst fleeing the scene.

If convicted of the felony charge, the cornerback could face up to a maximum of three years in prison, although it would be likely that the judge would impose probation of up to a year rather than jail time.

Culliver was an exciting prospect for the 49ers but unfortunately suffered a torn ACL in August 2013 and missed the entire season last year for San Francisco.
