49ers linebacker Reuben Foster has been charged with felony domestic violence stemming from a February incident in which he allegedly beat up his GF so bad, he ruptured her eardrum.
Officials say … on February 11, Foster’s 28-year-old live-in girlfriend flagged down a stranger’s car to call 911. She called police. The victim claimed Foster dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house, and punched her in the head 8 to 10 times.
The woman was hospitalized for her injuries and later released.
According to the Santa Clara District Attorney … 24-year-old Foster faces charges of domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, and possession of an assault weapon – all felonies.
He is also charged with misdemeanor possession of large capacity weapon magazine — since officials say they found a Sig Sauer 516 with a high-capacity magazine during the search of Foster’s home.
FYI, it’s illegal to posses a Sig Sauer 516 in the state of California.
If convicted, Foster faces more than 11 years in prison.
