Charges Against Texans RB D’Onta Foreman Dismissed

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports that the charges against Texans RB D’Onta Foreman stemming from an arrest in Austin, Texas last year have been dismissed.

Foreman was arrested for unlawful possession of a weapon and for possession of marijuana. However, prosecutors agreed to dismiss all pending charges against him if he has no legal issues for 90 days.

According to Wilson, Foreman paid a $500 fine and turned in a gun found in his car.

Foreman’s attorney, Chip Lewis said of the dismissal of charges: “Everybody’s happy. D’Onta is relieved. He’s learned a great deal from this. He’s a good kid.”

Foreman, 21, was selected with the No. 89 overall pick by the Texans last year. He signed a four-year contract worth $3,159,484, which includes a signing bonus of $759,484 and stands to make a base salary of $678,500 for the 2018 season.

In 2017, Foreman rushed for 327 yards on 78 carries (4.2 YPC) to go along with six receptions for 83 yards receiving and two touchdowns over the course of 10 games. His 2017 season came to an end with him being placed on injured reserve.
