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

The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office has dropped a misdemeanor ammunition charge against San Francisco 49ers' linebacker Reuber Foster, officials announced Monday.

Foster was arrested the morning of February 11 at a home on Shannon Road in Los Gatos after the woman, who has been in a relationship with Foster for several years, flagged down a stranger's vehicle to get help calling 911.

After being informed that a judge in San Diego issued an injunction prohibiting enforcement of this misdemeanor, the DA intends to ask the Santa Clara County Superior Court to dismiss the charge against Foster.

The Santa Clara District Attorney informed Foster's attorney the misdemeanor would be dropped at his next schedule court date April 30.

Foster, selected by the 49ers with the 31st overall pick in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, was charged with felony domestic violence against his live-in girlfriend on Thursday. He is scheduled to meet with the team this week, a sitdown that could determine his future with the franchise.

Here's the latest statement: "Rueben Foster will not participate in team activities as he is tending to his legal matters".

Foster, who has been working out on his own at the team facility since his legal troubles began, will not do so alongside his teammates, although the team is likely to continue to provide support and assistance in other ways while the matter goes through the court system. Foster's case is more serious and could last into the regular season.

"The 49ers organization is aware of today's disturbing charges regarding Reuben Foster".

According to the DA's office, the alleged victim flagged down a stranger's vehicle driving on Shannon Road in Los Gatos to call police.

"The victim told responding sheriff's deputies and Los Gatos police that Foster dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house, and punched her in the head 8 to 10 times", read the DA's release. She was taken to an area hospital with bruises and a ruptured eardrum.

A subsequent search of the couple's home uncovered an assault weapon - a Sig Sauer 516 - along with a large capacity magazine.

The NFL has said it is looking into possible discipline for Foster for both infractions.

Former prosecutor and legal analyst Steven Clark told KPIX 5 one big question mark is whether Foster's girlfriend will testify against him in court. He was named the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Month for November and finished the season ranked second on the team in tackles (72).
