San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was captured Sunday and charged with domestic violence, dangers, and possession of an assault weapon.
In a statement, police said they were called “in regards to a welfare check and possible disturbance call for service.” After an initial investigation, police arrested Foster and booked him at the county jail:

The incident makes it the second time Foster has been arrested in a month’s time. The San Francisco Chronicle reports Foster was arrested on Jan. 12 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for second-degree marijuana possession.
In a statement, 49ers Vice President of Communications Bob Lange said: “We take matters of this nature seriously and are gathering all pertinent information.”
During this past NFL season, Foster was among those on the 49ers who protested the national anthem:
The protests were begun by previous partner Colin Kaepernick to highlight police brutality and bigotry inside the United States.
