SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Demarcus Dobbs was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana, the California Highway Patrol said.

CHP Officer D.J. Sarabia said that Dobbs was involved in a single-car accident in which he hit a chain-link fence and a bush but didn't sustain any injuries. Dobbs was arrested at 3:45 a.m. in Santa Clara, where the team trains.

"Just property damage, so no injuries. He was the only one involved," Sarabia said. "It was cut and dry, without incident."

The arrest came on the 25th birthday for Dobbs, one of the NFC West-leading Niners' top special teams players. The 49ers released a statement Friday afternoon saying Dobbs wouldn't travel with the team Friday to St. Louis, where San Francisco faces the Rams on Sunday.

The 49ers said they have been in contact with Dobbs and the NFL office and "we are gathering the relevant facts as it pertains to this situation."

"He will not be making the trip to St. Louis, and we will reserve further comment at this time," the team said.
