Reuben Foster Arrested On Domestic Violence-Related Charges

Reuben Foster is currently being held in Santa Clara County Jail after being booked Sunday on charges relating to domestic violence, Sarah Ravani and Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle report.

The 23-year-old 49ers linebacker remains in jail, according to the Chronicle writers. Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News tweets Foster is being held on $75,000 bail. The 49ers are aware of the arrest and gathering information, per Branch (on Twitter).

In addition to the domestic violence allegation, Foster was also booked on suspicion for possessing an assault rifle, Robert Salonga of the Mercury News reports (via Twitter).

This is Foster’s second arrest within the last month, although this one appears far more serious.

The 2017 first-round pick was arrested on second-degree marijuana possession charges in mid-January. That arrest figures to void some of Foster’s guarantees. This one could well affect his availability for the 2018 season. A six-game suspension is in play for Foster, even if he’s not ultimately convicted. Branch tweets it’s unknown if league discipline will be levied for the January marijuana arrest.

Foster’s draft stock fell because of injuries and potentially his being kicked out of the Combine last year. While the 49ers look to have drafted a high-ceiling talent, with Foster playing well when available during his rookie season, the former Alabama stalwart has some potentially significant off-field baggage to surmount.

The current San Francisco power structure has acted swiftly in the past when dealing with domestic violence incidents. Although charges against Tramaine Brock were later dropped, the 49ers cut the productive cornerback the day after he was arrested last April. It’s extremely unlikely they’ll take this route with Foster, however, given his standing within the organization. But the second-year player is now probably on much thinner ice with his team.

    All that talent. What an idiot! Reminds me of Aldon Smith, can be a complete beast but can’t stay out of trouble. This result worries me. I hope he can get it together. Regardless he will be facing a suspension but you can’t help but wonder if he will face punishment from the 49ers. Guess they better be looking into adding some LB’s on top of adding to the CB position.

      I wanted the Lions to take this guy and couldn’t believe they left him on the board with LB such a need.

      So glad we got Jarrad Davis who will be a force for a decade and not this guy who got tossed from the combine and arrested twice.

      Yep, the signs were there. Don’t feel sorry for teams that take chances on players with questionable character flaws and then get burned.

    Need to get him a mentor LB fast. Bowman was that but got released. He’s supposed to be our best defensive player for our future but things like this could stop a team from reaching its full potential.

      I understand where this statement is coming from, but no mentor in the world is going to prevent a monster from beating a woman.

        That is true but maybe a mentor gets into his head about the other charge he got

        Allegedly. Charged not convicted. Let’s wait to pass judgement

          Lol ok? That has nothing to do with what they said, their statement stands on its own without being specific to Foster.

    As a 49ers fan I saw cut the jerk. Zero tolerance policy for domestic violence. The fact he is being kept in jail and has such a high bond is enough to say cya.

        You don’t get a 75k bond for just a verbal altercation. There has to be some serious evidence to get that kind of bond on a domestic charge.

          “…serious evidence”? How about an assault rifle (and, maybe a banged up human). Sounds like some serious evidence to me, if that’s what the police claim to have found.

            Read my post it cleary says “if guilty sure”. Not every assault rifle is illegal and domestic violence is sometimes verbal

          “You don’t get a 75k bond assaulting a person and an assault rifle. This cant be that serious. If she even had a bruise this would be much higher.”

          Fixed it for ya.

          Signed. Former bondsman

            Is a bondsman the same as those guys that go after bail jumpers?

          “mean if communism means everyone can get healthcare, the top 1% of the country don’t own all the money, and sexual abuse allegations are taken seriously, then yeah sign me up for communism ASAP”

          This is a sports board. Yeah i used “communist” but please, i use the name “Americaneducated” because of people like you online.

          In a communist country you still have a 1% and then a 99% which is all poor. Yes they all get the same healthcare with death panels and months of wait time.

          You my friend are “American educated” you win.

          Lets stick to sports. Im a big 9er fan and this looks like aldon all over again, which is sad because he looked so promising.

          A silver lining could be that he seems very fraigle, almost ever game he had 2 go under the tent.

          If all true…. man some of these athletes have the world in thier hands and crumble. I guess the same could be said of all walks of life.

            lol these imbecile “americans” ” will do anything to live under Communism if it means that rich people can’t be rich. They don’t know what it takes to be wealthy, rather they just see the handout. it’s not fair that someone worked harder and got more. lmao I feel you America Educated. it’s crazy out here.

            How are you going to post about communism, then when someone talks about equal wages you change it to “this is a sports board, nothing political!!” like ok buddy, first of all, YOU brought it up. How about don’t bring something up if you don’t want to talk about it yeah?? You should try using logic instead of making yourself look stupid. Your name is “Americaneducated”, is that to prove why America is like 17th in education despite being the “greatest country in the world”?

        What part of your original comment ISN’T political? What does “due process” have to do with communism? I have so many questions but you don’t have any answers
