San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was booked on Sunday at the Santa Clara County Jail on charges relating to domestic violence, according to a report by the San Francisco Chronicle.

In addition to the domestic violence allegation, Foster was also booked on suspicion for possessing an assault rifle, according to the Mercury News.


The arrest took place in Los Gatos, and Foster is being held on $75,000 bail (reported earlier as 'without bail').

The 49ers issued the following statement regarding the arrest:

"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."

The Mercury News reported that officers were dispatched to Foster's home after a report of domestic violence. The alleged female victim, who has been involved in a long-term relationship with Foster, told officers the assault took place following an argument between the couple.

The weapon was found at Foster's home during the police response.

The latest arrest is Foster's second in a month. On January 12, the 49ers linebacker was arrested in Alabama and charged with second-degree possession of marijuana.

Foster was the second of two first-round picks (No. 31 overall) by the 49ers in last year's draft and started 10 games while registering 72 combined tackles and a pass defensed. Foster missed six games with a high ankle sprain and a rib injury. During the 2017 season, he was named the Defensive Rookie of the Month for November.

Foster also finished the season with the team's highest player grade (90.7), according to Pro Football Focus, just edging second-year defensive tackle DeForest Buckner (90.4).

The San Francisco 49ers escaped having to play an international game for another season. The Bay Area team won't be required to travel overseas or compete in Mexico during the 2024 season. The NFL has released its lineup of international games, and the 49ers aren't among the teams scheduled for long-distance journeys. San Francisco's last international game was in 2022, where they triumphed over the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico. Their prior overseas venture was to London in 2013, when they clinched a victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium. There was a chance that the 49ers might return to the United Kingdom for the 2024 NFL season.

Does 49ers QB Brock Purdy need Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel for success?

By David Bonilla

Rumors circulated before and during the 2024 NFL Draft about the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers losing one of their top two wide receivers—Brandon Aiyuk or Deebo Samuel. Such a scenario could have significantly impacted the team's success in the upcoming season and posed a potential blow for quarterback Brock Purdy, who has thrived alongside the dynamic duo on the field. However, none of these speculations came to fruition. Both Aiyuk and Samuel remain on the roster, at least for another season, though their future beyond that remains uncertain. Aiyuk is seeking a contract extension that would position him among the highest-paid wide receivers in the NFL. At the same time, Samuel already commands a significant salary following a deal rework in 2022.
