Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle provided the details of this disturbing arrest.
“Foster, 24, was arrested at 9:10 p.m. local time and booked into jail at 11:11 p.m., according to an arrest report from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department. No bond has been posted yet. On Saturday, two members of the valet-parking staff said an ambulance was at the Grand Hyatt earlier in the evening.”
This is just the latest in a string of off-field incidents that have plagued the young linebacker this past year. He was previously cleared of domestic violence charges when his ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis took the stand and said she had lied about Foster beating her up on Feb. 11.
Foster has also been arrested this past calendar year on marijuana charges. He was suspended by the league for two games to open the season, and the organization has made it clear that he’s one big strike away from being released.
