49ers LB Foster pleads no contest to weapons charges, gets probation

June 6 2018 11:35 PM

The legal saga surrounding San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster has come to a conclusion after he pleaded no contest to misdemeanour weapons possession.

Foster was sentenced to two years probation, 232 hours of community service and must pay $235 in fines.

The more serious charges of felony domestic violence were dropped two weeks ago after the judge cited lack of evidence.

Foster was initially charged after his ex-girlfriend accused him of assaulting her in February. Elissa Ennis later recanted, saying she wanted to destroy his life after he tried to end their relationship.

However, the weapons charge stuck after police discovered he had an assault rifle that is illegal in California in his possession.

Last month Foster had a misdemeanour marijuana charge dropped by prosecutors in Alabama.

"The 49ers organisation is aware of the recent developments in the legal proceedings involving Reuben Foster and that the matter has come to a conclusion," general manager John Lynch said.

Despite the weapons charge only being a misdemeanour, the NFL is reportedly still considering a multi-game suspension for Foster.

A first-round pick out of Alabama in 2017, Foster shone for the 49ers in his rookie year with 72 tackles in 10 games.
