49ers LB Reuben Foster Accused Of Dragging Girlfriend During Argument


According to the Mercury News, 49ers LB Reuben Foster is accused of physically dragging his girlfriend during an argument at a Los Gatos home Sunday morning.

The incident reportedly left the victim injured. Although, the extent of her injuries has not been disclosed as of now.

Sources familiar with the investigation have told the Mercury News that Foster and his girlfriend were arguing and that he threw her belongings onto a front walkway and balcony. Foster later attempted to physically drag her and remove her from the home.

Foster’s girlfriend, who has been in a relationship with him for several years, told police dispatchers during a 911 call that he owned multiple semiautomatic rifles and police recovered one firearm — a SIG Sauer 516 short-barreled rifle — upon arresting him.

Foster was booked on suspicion of domestic violence, making criminal threats, and possessing an assault weapon before being released on $75,000 bail.

Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Foster visited with the 49ers at their training facility in Santa Clara and met with team officials regarding the situation.

The 49ers released the following statement regarding Foster:

“The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the report regarding Reuben Foster. We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information.”

This is actually the second time Foster has been arrested in the past month after he was taken into custody for second-degree marijuana possession while in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Foster, 23, is a former first-round pick of the 49ers back in 2017. He’s entering the second year of his four-year, $9.03 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $875,708 and $1.28 million over the next two years of the agreement.

The 49ers will have a fifth-year option to pick up in 2020 that’s guaranteed for injury only.

In 2017, Foster appeared in 10 games and recorded 72 tackles, no sacks or interceptions and one pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 4 linebacker out of 88 qualifying players.
