Reuben Foster of the SF 49ers arrested in Tuscaloosa

Despite it being legal in California, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested for weed in Alabama on Friday (Jan. 12).

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 drafted Foster in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and he would go on to play 10 games registering a total of 72 tackles (59 solo). According to former sports agent and writer for CBS Sports, Joel Correy, Foster could lose a substantial sum from his rookie contract in future years. He also submitted a diluted urine sample for a drug test at the Scouting Combine, which in the National Football League is considered the same as a positive test.

"We spoke with Reuben about that and felt comfortable about that situation, as well", Lynch said at the time.

When Lynch was directly asked about the diluted sample, he made it clear he was not concerned.
