49ers Star Reuben Foster Charged With Felony Domestic ViolenceCelebNSports247.com were shocked when got word of the new about Reuben Foster  going full Ray Rice on his live-in girlfriend at the couple’s Los Gatos home on Feb. 11th.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster, a young defensive star who was viewed as a key building block, was charged Thursday with felony domestic violence and possession of an assault weapon, prosecutors announced.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office said the charges stem from a violent attack on his live-in girlfriend at the couple’s Los Gatos home on Feb. 11th.

The rookie made his NFL debut with the 49ers and had serious promise, but now that is over since he is facing a sentence of 11 years in prison.

Maybe the pressure of a girlfriend and football was too much for the 28-year-old linebacker or he could be suffering from early signs of CTE?

Regardless of what could be the underlying issue of his violent attack, the prosecutors said Foster was charged with three felonies. The charges are; domestic violence with an allegation that he inflected great bodily injury, forcefully preventing a victim from reporting a crime and illegal possession of an assault weapon.

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

Deputy DA Kevin Smith released this statement:

“Our focus is on holding accountable those who hurt their intimate partners. Our office handles between four and five thousand domestic violence cases each year. We only hope that this case illuminates the tragic regularity of the rest.

Meanwhile, The 49ers said in a prepared statement:

The 49ers organization is aware of today’s disturbing charges regarding Reuben Foster. We will continue to follow this serious matter. Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process.

49ers’ cornerback Richard Sherman was seen in court supporting his teammate Reuben Foster.

If you recall, on Feb. 11th the victim flagged down a stranger’s car driving on Shannon Road in Los Gatos and asked for help. When officers arrived, the girlfriend told them that Foster had dragged by her hair, physically threw her out of the house and punched her 8-10 times in the head, according to the DA’s office.
