The San Francisco 49ers will release Reuben Foster following a charge of misdemeanor domestic violence.
Foster was arrested Saturday at 9:10 p.m. at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Tampa and booked into jail two hours later. Foster's bond was set at $2,000 during a bail hearing Sunday morning along with orders to avoid any contact with the accuser. Foster was released on bond Sunday afternoon.
Foster was previously arrested on charges of felony domestic violence stemming from a February incident at his home in Los Gatos.
According to the arrest report, the woman pressing charges against Foster for Saturday night's arrest is Elissa Ennis, the same woman who accused Foster of felony domestic violence earlier this year.
"We have a set of standards in place that the players were involved with in developing," John Lynch said. "In this case, it was communicated exceptionally clear and to the point as to what we expected out of him and unfortunately what transpired yesterday, this isn't a comment on what happened there because that would be mere speculation on our part. It's more of a comment on him not living up to what we had communicated and to the energy and the time that we've invested in him.
"That doesn't mean we don't love him, we all do, we care for him but we feel like it's in the best interest of our organization to move on at this point and that's a very tough decision."
