Reuben Foster, a first-round pick for the San Francisco 49ers last year, has been formally charged with felony domestic violence for a February incident involving his girlfriend. According to the Santa Clara County District Attorney, Foster is alleged to have dragged his girlfriend by the hair, punched her 8-10 times, and thrown her from the house. She also allegedly ruptured her eardrum in the attack, and had to flee and flag down a passing motorist.
Foster is also being charged with felony possession of an assault weapon, because police discovered an illegal Sig Sauer 516 in his possession when they went to search his residence in investigating the assault. – TO
