The San Francisco 49ers have released linebacker Reuben Foster on Sunday morning. Foster was arrested in Tampa, Florida on a domestic violence matter.
He was arrested by the authorities at approx. 9:10 pm at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. This is the hotel that the 49ers were standing in before playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
Then, he was booked into jail by the Hillsborough County (Fla.) Sheriff’s department at 11:11 pm on a charge of first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
The alleged victim claims that she was in a verbal altercation with the now former NFL player. He allegedly slapped her phone out of her hand. He also allegedly pushed her in the chest area and slapped her in the face with an open and on the right-side of her face.
The authorities also saw a “one-inch scratch on her left collarbone.”
Foster and the woman previously lived together, according to the authorities. They also said the two were in an on-again, off-again relationship over the past three-years.
The woman is the same individual, who claimed Foster of domestic violence in February. She then recanted when questioned by the authorities, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
“We can promise you guys, if there’s someone who ever hits their significant other, girlfriends, some person like that, that person is not going to be on our team,” 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said in February following Foster’s first domestic violence matter this year. “I feel strongly about that. I know John [Lynch, 49ers general manager] does. I know our ownership does. That’s how we feel about it.
“Obviously, Reuben is on our team right now, so we’re waiting to see how that goes. But, if that’s something that we felt he did or ended up happening, you guys will see how we feel.”
Foster played in just 16 games with the team after they used a first-round draft pick to select him in the 2017 NFL Draft. In six games this season, he has 29 tackles, but had no sacks, forced fumble, fumble recoveries, or interceptions.
