San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested Sunday for allegedly committing domestic violence and having illegal weapons.
The 2017 first-round draft pick was also arrested and charged with second-degree possession of marijuana on Jan. 12.
Foster’s bail was set at $75,000 and he was released later Sunday evening.
“The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the report regarding Reuben Foster,” the team said in a release obtained by multiple reporters. “We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information.”
According to the Los Gatos Monte Sereno Police Department, “Foster was arrested Sunday morning after cops responded to a welfare check and possible disturbance call. They say the 49ers star was arrested without incident. He was booked on three separate charges — domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon. No further details were immediately available.”
The NFL is trying to clean up its image and allowing men who allegedly beat women won’t be tolerated. The Ray Rice incident forced the NFL to aggressively pursue change when it comes to dealing with players arrested for charges related to violence against women.
