Reuben Foster arrested 11/24 for domestic violence. Career in peril?

Recommended Posts

Ignoring the morals and gravity of the offences (which is hard to do) for both the 49ers and fantasy football owners this is abotu the best possible outcome.

Report: 49ers LB Reuben Foster arrested on domestic violence charge in Florida

11-24-2018

San Francisco linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence battery on Saturday night at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay in Florida ahead of the 49ers game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Foster was arrested around 9 p.m. on Saturday night, and booked at the Hillsborough County jail around 11 p.m., according to the report. No bond has yet been posted. An ambulance was also seen at the hotel earlier in the evening.

Team officials did not comment to the San Francisco Chronicle on Saturday night about the incident.

This incident marks the latest for Foster over the past year. He served a two-game suspension to start the season for violating the NFL’s conduct and substance abuse policy after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor gun charge. Charges were dropped from a marijuana arrest during the offseason.

Foster was accused of serious domestic violence allegations from his former girlfriend this summer, though those charges were dropped after she recanted her initial statement, claiming she made up the story for money. The alleged victim initially told police Foster “dragged her by the hair, physically removed her from their house, and punched her in her head at least eight times.”

Foster has recorded 29 total tackles so far this season over six games. He has battled both a shoulder and a hamstring injury this season, and was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.

It's official. 

49ers waived LB Reuben Foster.

It's a fully expected move from the 49ers after Foster's second domestic violence charge in the last year. Foster was suspended the first two weeks due to off-field issues and has had multiple run-ins with the law since getting drafted. Injury prone and not overly productive when healthy, Foster's career is in jeopardy after his latest arrest. The 49ers will turn to OLB Elijah Lee at the Will spot for the rest of the season.

Washington Post already roasting the Redskins for picking this guy up:

I understand this guy is probably a complete jack***, but that’s different than an actual determination he’s abusive towards women.  So I honestly don’t get NFL teams and the media preconvicting him in the case.  Do they have better investigative units than a district attorney?  You let the facts play out in court and then make a determination.

Or you wait until the facts play out and sign him to your team if he beats the charges. Hmm... maybe "beats the charges" is the wrong way to say this...
