The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s office just announced it has charged 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster with three felonies: “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.”
Here’s a copy of the press release:

The release notes Foster attacked his live-in girlfriend, “dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the the house and punched her in the face 8 to 10 times.” Foster’s girlfriend suffered a ruptured ear drum.
Sounds like what Ray Rice did, except much worse.
Do you think the 49ers will release Reuben Foster? Why or why not?
UPDATE: Here is a statement from the 49ers about foster. “The 49ers organization is aware of today’s disturbing charges regarding Reuben Foster. We will continue to follow this serious matter. Reuben is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process.”
