Reports say 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster arrested for domestic violence

Reuben Foster has been arrested for the second time in as many months, this time on domestic violence charges in Santa Clara County.

Foster also was arrested on suspicion of possessing an assault rifle, according to the Mercury News.

The arrest took place in Los Gatos and Foster is being held without bail.

The Los Gatos Police Department did not respond to calls for comment.

According to Ravani and Branch, Foster was also arrested on January 12 while in Tuscaloosa, Alabama-where he attended the University of Alabama-for second-degree marijuana possession.

Foster is coming off of a productive rookie season with the 49ers.

Foster has issues leading up to the NFL Draft.

This is the second time Foster has been arrested this offseason.

While playing just 10 games as a rookie last season, Foster recorded 72 tackles and one pass deflected. San Francisco selected him 31st overall. MMQB.com reported a team with a top-15 pick didn't have Foster on its draft board because of his "immaturity" and "issues with life skills", and that was before his failed drug test and altercation at the combine.

After selecting Foster, General manager John Lynch was asked about the concerns regarding the linebacker's character, that largely led to him falling deep into the first round. "We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information", the team said in a statement, per NBC Sports Bay Area. In April, Santa Clara County prosecutors filed felony domestic violence charges against former 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock. We all know how special of a player he can be when he's right.
