Reuben Foster arrested in Florida on domestic violence charge



49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested on Saturday evening in Tampa Bay on suspicion of domestic-violence battery as first reported by Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Foster was arrested at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay hotel at 9:10 p.m. ET, where the team is staying before their game on Sunday vs. the Buccaneers. Foster was booked at 11:11 p.m. ET, and no bond was immediately posted, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff.

According to Branch, two members of the hotel’s valet-parking staff said an ambulance was at the Grand Hyatt earlier in the evening.

This is the second time Foster, 24, has been arrested on domestic violence charges in the last six months. During the offseason, Foster was accused by his ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis of striking her during an incident on Feb. 11. A Santa Clara County Court judge later dropped the charges after Ennis said she fabricated the story as a means to get back at Foster.

During and after the incident, both 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan said they have a zero-tolerance policy for domestic violence. Lynch also stated that Foster, who has had legal troubles since the NFL draft combine in 2017, is not guaranteed a place on the team if his off the field issues continue.

The 49ers are yet to comment on the incident.
