NFL legend Frank Gore has been hit with an assault charge ... after cops say he was involved in a domestic violence incident with a 28-year-old woman last month.
The Atlantic City Police Dept. tells TMZ Sports ... back on July 31 at around 8:11 a.m., officers were called to the Tropicana Atlantic City in New Jersey regarding a report of a domestic violence dispute.
Cops say a 28-year-old woman, who they did not identify, was speaking with hotel security ... but "did not exhibit signs of injury and complaints were not filed at the time."
Police, though, say after an investigation was launched ... Gore was ultimately charged this week with simple assault "related to the domestic violence incident."
No further details regarding the allegations were revealed.
According to court records, the 39-year-old former San Francisco 49ers superstar is due for a hearing on the matter in mid-October.
Gore is widely considered one of the greatest NFL running backs ever -- he played 16 seasons in the league, and rushed for 16,000 yards ... the third-most all-time.
Today was a great day!!!

Since he last played in the 2020 season, Gore has become a boxer. In his first fight in 2021 with ex-NBA star Deron Williams, he lost via split decision. He later recorded a highlight real knockout in his second-ever fight against Yaya Olorunsola earlier this year.
