NFL linebacker Reuben Foster has been brought up on domestic violence and weapons charges in connection with the alleged beating of a girlfriend who lived with him in his Los Gatos, CA home two months ago.
Foster appeared in court on Thursday, April 12, backed by the support of teammates Richard Sherman and Jaquiski Tartt - who were in attendance to help him keep his head up as he faced a Santa Clara County Superior Court judge over the fate of his immediate future.
It turns out, fans will not get to know whether or not Foster plans on fighting the felony counts he's incurred because the judge selected to push his plea hearing back after setting his bail at $75,000.
Back on February 11, it was reported that an altercation between Foster and his ex escalated as he attempted to remove her from their shared residence. According to the account provided to police by the 28-year-old woman, the San Francisco 49ers star dragged her by her hair and punched her in the head between eight and ten times.
She reportedly suffered bruises and a ruptured eardrum as a result. Soon after police arrived, Foster wound up answering for additional offenses when officers on the scene recovered a Sig Sauer 516 assault rifle and large-capacity magazine.
In addition, Foster is facing felony counts of forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possession of an assault weapon, as a result. He is due back in court on April 30.
