- 49ers linebacker Ruben Foster has been arrested on charges related to domestic violence, according to a report by the San Francisco Chronicle.

According to Ravani and Branch, Foster was also arrested on January 12 while in Tuscaloosa, Alabama-where he attended the University of Alabama-for second-degree marijuana possession.

In 2017, he failed a drug test at the National Football League combine for submitting a diluted sample. He finished second on the team in tackles despite missing almost seven full games with injuries and won praise for his hard-hitting style.

Foster also was arrested on suspicion of possessing an assault rifle, according to the Mercury News.

Foster is coming off an outstanding rookie season despite suffering an ankle sprain that sidelined him for five games.


"I would anticipate people maybe questioning some of his character, but I would tell you his character's what drew us to him", Lynch said after the 49ers selected Foster in the first round on April 27.

Foster had troubles before the NFL Draft, too.

The 49ers organization said it was "aware" of reports of Foster's arrest, and added: "We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information".

Foster, however, has dealt with a number of off-the-field issues.

This is Foster's second arrest in less than a month. We all know how special of a player he can be when he's right. Last spring, cornerback Tramaine Brock was arrested on domestic violence and immediately cut by the team.
