San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster facing multiple charges

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster facing multiple charges

After a thorough investigation, he was officially charged today with felony domestic violence against his live-in girlfriend.

The Santa Clara District Attorney's office released a statement describing the incident. "Our office handles between four and five thousand domestic violence cases each year. We hope this case illuminates the tragic regularity of the rest".

The incident happened after the season so there was no immediate football activity (such that an immediate release versus waiting for formal charges impacted his participation), but now that we've seen the charges and the team activities are approaching, the 49ers have to act.

He was also charged with possession of a large capacity weapon magazine, a misdemeanor.

As of now, Foster will remain on the 49ers roster but the league office is expected to take action in the form of a suspension.

If he is convicted, he could face more than 11 years in prison. Foster's home was searched and officers found a Sig Sauer 516 rifle along with a large-capacity magazine, both of which are illegal to possess in California.

Sky Issues Statement On UK Panel Ruling
Mr Murdoch's family already have extensive media holdings, including stakes in newspapers such as The Sun and The Times . However, it ensures a guaranteed bidder for Sky in the event that British regulators don't sign off the Fox takeover.

The NFL issued a statement Thursday saying "we continue to monitor all developments in this matter which is under review of the personal conduct policy". They did not follow the same path with Foster, a first-round pick in 2017, because, according to general manager John Lynch, "each situation is different, and we'll leave it at that".

In January, Foster was arrested and charged with second-degree marijuana possession in Alabama. These allegations involving Foster are serious and will involve a legal charge that could result in jail time.

Foster will appear in Santa Clara County Superior Court for arraignment Thursday afternoon.

The team's offseason program formally begins April 16.

"We'd love Reuben to be on this team, and we'd love him to participate for us", 49ers CEO Jed York told NBC Sports Bay Area last month.
