Reuben Foster will stay away from 49ers during legal issues

Reuben Foster will stay away from 49ers during legal issues

The charges stem from a February 11 incident where prosecutors contend Foster "dragged" his live-in girlfriend "by her hair, physically threw her out of the house, and punched her in the head 8 to 10 times", rupturing her eardrum.

He faces charges of domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, and possession of an assault weapon. "As previously stated, his future with the team will be determined by the information revealed during the legal process", the statement reads.

Linebacker Reuben Foster will not face the misdemeanor charge for possession of a large-capacity ammunition magazine due to a federal injunction.

The DA's office said Friday it is prepared to prosecute Foster even if the reported victim ends up not testifying, an issue that stymied previous domestic-violence cases against players.

Foster last Thursday was charged with three felonies, two of which are related to domestic violence, and a misdemeanor for possession of ammunition for an assault rifle.

The San Francisco 49ers will start their offseason program on Monday, but linebacker Reuben Foster won't be there.

TV presenter Ant fined and banned from driving
One of the cars was hit from behind, and as the traffic moved off, the front of a blue vehicle could be seen damaged. The 42-year-old was fined £86,000 after pleading guilty to drink driving and banned from the road for 20 months.

The 28-year-old alleged victim, who was his live-in girlfriend at the time, reportedly suffered bruises and a ruptured eardrum from the altercation. On Sunday, CEO Jed York, coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch released a joint statement announcing that Foster will not join his teammates for a voluntary nine-week offseason program that began Monday. Foster didn't enter a plea at his arraignment before Santa Clara Superior Court Judge Nona Klippen at the Hall of Justice in San Jose, California, and he left the courthouse after Klippen set his bail at $75,000.

Foster missed six of San Francisco's first eight games during his rookie season because of the injuries.

If Foster is able to return to the field this fall, he'll be on thin ice, as one more off-the-field incident could very well cause his National Football League career to come to an end.

After Foster was charged last week, the Niners issued a statement saying they meant to follow the matter and noted that Foster "is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process".

"But we're going to remain supportive and try to help our players every way that we can", Saban said.
