A former Alabama star linebacker was arrested in Tuscaloosa on Friday.
Reuben Foster, who just finished his rookie season with the San Francisco 49ers, was arrested and charged with second-degree possession of marijuana, according to the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest database.
Bond was set at $2,500 for Foster, who was a first-team All-American for the Crimson Tide in 2016 and also won the Butkus Award.
“The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the matter involving Reuben Foster,” the 49ers said in a statement, “and we are currently gathering all relevant facts.”
A first round pick in last year’s NFL draft, Foster is now widely viewed as one of the NFL’s most promising young defensive players.
