Misdemeanor ammunition charge dropped against 49ers' Reuben Foster

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

The misdemeanor ammunition charge is expected to be dropped, according to the DA, because of a federal injunction.

FULL LIST: Arrests of San Francisco 49ers players since 2012 " Our office handles between four and five thousand domestic violence cases each year", said Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Kevin Smith.

Foster, 24, was charged Thursday with domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempted to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possessed an assault weapon. And I predict Foster will go to prison.

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

Foster was arraigned Friday in a San Jose courtroom, where Judge Nona Klippen ordered him not to contact the 28-year old girlfriend.

Foster is free on $75,000 bond and has a plea hearing on April 30.

The DA's office said Friday it is prepared to prosecute Foster even if the reported victim ends up not testifying, an issue that stymied previous domestic-violence cases against players.

Police have warned social media trolls they could be committing a criminal offence by abusing referee Michael Oliver and his wife Lucy.

The 24-year-old National Football League player is accused of physically attacking a 28-year-old woman during a February argument at their Los Gatos home.

Sources familiar with the investigation told this news organization that the woman and Foster were arguing and he threw her belongings onto a front walkway and balcony. As a result, it was up to the 49ers as to whether he would participate in any offseason workouts.

"As previously stated, [Foster's] future with the team will be determined by the information revealed during the legal process", the Niners' statement said Sunday. Foster was eventually arrested without incident.

Foster was formally charged with felony charges of domestic violence from a February 11 incident involving his 28-year-old live-in girlfriend, the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office announced Thursday.

"Rueben Foster will not participate in team activities as he is tending to his legal matters", the statement said.

The 49ers' move with Foster is similar to the one they made with former fullback Bruce Miller in 2015 after he was accused of shoving his girlfriend and destroying her cell phone.

The 49ers are still taking a wait-and-see approach to Foster's legal plight.

San Francisco released a statement Thursday acknowledging the charges against Foster.
