49ers linebacker arrested for the second time this year


The San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, making criminal threats, and possession of an assault weapon on Feb.11, 2018.

Officers in Los Gatos, N.C. responded after receiving a disturbance call from a home. Foster was arrested without incident after officers at the scene investigated, according to USA Today.

"The incident is still under current investigation at this time," Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department said in its statement.

“The RP (reporting party) advises there should be at least two AR-15 weapons in the house,” a dispatcher told an officer on the scene in scanner traffic reviewed by USA TODAY Sports.

Foster’s bail was set at $75,000. He was in custody for hours, but he was no longer in custody by 10:25 p.m.

Domestic violence is a felony and can be punishable up to four years in prison. Making criminal threats and assault with a deadly weapon can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor under the law of California.

This is the second time this year Foster has been arrested. The first arrest was in Alabama on Jan 12, 2018, for “suspicion of marijuana possession” and he was bailed out at $2,500.
