49ers say Reuben Foster won't participate in team activities while tending to legal matters

"As previously stated, his future with the team will be determined by the information revealed during the legal process". Will be updatedSan Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster won't participate in the offseason program while he tends to legal matters related to his domestic violence charges.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster will not participate in team activities as he is tending to his legal matters, the team announced on Sunday.

Offseason workouts begin Monday for the 49ers. Foster has been charged with felony domestic violence after being accused of attacking his girlfriend, authorities said.

Foster faces allegations that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempted to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possession of an assault weapon.

Foster made his first court appearance on Thursday after being charged earlier in the day. He faces more than 11 years in prison if convicted, per the release from the DA's office. "Our office handles between four and five thousand domestic violence cases each year. We will continue to follow this serious matter", the statement read.

The charges stem from an incident on February 11, when the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department responded to a possible disturbance at a Los Gatos home and ended up arresting Foster. "Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process". She was taken to an area hospital with bruises and a ruptured eardrum.

The woman flagged down a vehicle driving to call 911 and was transported to a hospital after speaking to police. Both are illegal to possess in California.

San Francisco released a statement Thursday acknowledging the charges against Foster. He has been charged with second-degree marijuana possession. A second charge could lead to a lifetime ban.

"In the eventuality that the complaining party does not want to testify in court, you will see the DA proceed anyway because this is such an important case nationally because of the involvement of the National Football League and the issue of domestic violence and athletes", said Clark. Foster was named the Defensive Rookie of the Month for November during the 2017 season.
