San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested Friday night on possession of marijuana, as first reported by Chandler Rome of The Anniston Star. Foster was arrested in Tuscaloosa, home of the Alabama Crimson Tide, where he roamed as a linebacker prior to joining the professional ranks.
Foster ran into trouble shortly thereafter.
Last March, Foster was dismissed from the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine after an altercation with medical staff. He blew up at medical personnel at the National Football League combine and his urine sample came back dilute, which is an automatic positive test.
Roger Federer faces Aljaz Bedene first up in Australian Open tennis
Hours after battling past Kiki Bertens 6-3 7-6 (6) to reach the quarter-finals, the 24-year-old announced she had withdrawn. A rematch of last year's Australian Open semifinal with 2017's strongest finisher, Grigor Dimitrov , is on the cards.
The promising linebacker finished second on the 49ers with 72 tackles in 10 games.
It's unclear what Foster was doing leading up to his arrest, although he did enter the National Football League with some red flags and character concerns.
Foster entered the Alabama locker room following its 24-6 win against Clemson in this season's Sugar Bowl, much to the delight of his former defensive teammates, who mobbed him upon his arrival.
