D.A. drops weapons charge against 49ers LB Foster

Linebacker Reuben Foster will not face the misdemeanor charge for possession of a large-capacity ammunition magazine due to a federal injunction.

The Santa Clara District Attorney informed Foster’s attorney the misdemeanor would be dropped at his next schedule court date April 30.

However, the San Francisco 49ers’ second-year starter does face three felony counts — domestic violence, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possessing an assault weapon.

The 24-year-old Foster, a first-round pick in 2017, is not participating in offseason workouts with the 49ers. He is scheduled to meet with the team this week, a sitdown that could determine his future with the franchise.

Foster is accused of dragging his girlfriend by the hair and punching her in the head eight to 10 times. The blows to the head left the alleged victim with a punctured eardrum, according to police.

Foster’s arrest following the incident was his second in the span of 30 days.
