NFL players are often arrested during the offseason. Facts don’t lie.
However, San Francisco 49ers linebacker (and anthem kneeler) Reuben Foster is making it a habit, having been arrested for the second time in one month.
The Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police confirmed Sunday night that Foster was arrested earlier in the day on charges related to domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon.
Police responded to a disturbance call placed at approximately 9:15 a.m. Sunday at a Los Gatos residence. Upon arrival, officers spoke to Foster and the alleged victim. The result of the initial investigation was to arrest Foster, 23.
Foster was then transported and booked at the Santa Clara County Main Jail, where he was held on $75,000 bail. He was released on bail Sunday night. The Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police said the incident remains under investigation.
The 49ers released a statement Sunday night indicating that they were in the process of gathering facts about the situation.
“The San Francisco 49ers organization is aware of the report regarding Reuben Foster,” the statement said. “We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information.”

More from NBC Bay Area:
Foster played in 10 games as a rookie in 2017 and combined for 72 total tackles. Despite missing six games due to injury, Foster finished the year second on the team in tackles.
The 49ers traded back into the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft and selected Foster No. 31 overall out of Alabama.
What a loser!
Let’s wait to see what the 49ers organization does with this guy!
