FanRag Sports confirmed the arrest by a database search. He was arrested for second-degree marijuana possession in Alabama and is now out of custody after paying a $2,500 bond.

Foster is coming off his rookie season in the National Football League, having been limited to 10 games. The former Alabama product played in 10 games previous year with San Francisco, still finishing second on the team with 59 tackles.

A first-round pick by the 49ers, Foster enjoyed an excellent rookie season in the National Football League, tallying 59 tackles in the middle of San Francisco's defense. Prior to being chosen in the draft, he was dismissed from the NFL Scouting Combine, having gotten into a confrontation with a hospital worker. He blew up at medical personnel at the National Football League combine and his urine sample came back dilute, which is an automatic positive test.

He was drafted 31st overall by the 49ers last spring.

The promising linebacker finished second on the 49ers with 72 tackles in 10 games. It is unclear if there will be ramifications for him with the team.
