The San Francisco 49ers announced Sunday that Reuben Foster - who has been charged with felony domestic violence and possession of an assault weapon - will not participate in the team's off-season drills slated to start this week.
The injunction, issued last June by U.S. District Judge Roger T. Benitez, involves Proposition 63, a 2016 voter-approved initiative that outlawed ammunition magazines holding more than 10 rounds, requires background checks for bullet purchases, criminalizes the failure to report lost or stolen guns, and strengthened avenues to remove guns from felons upon being convicted.
Prosecutors said Foster was charged with three felonies - domestic violence with an allegation that he inflected great bodily injury, forcefully preventing a victim from reporting a crime and illegal possession of an assault weapon. And I predict Foster will go to prison. The girlfriend also told authorities Foster "dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of the house, and punched her in the head eight to 10 times".

When Gerard played behind him with the pace that Torres had, they caused havoc in rival defences together'. They have let in very few goals and they play such quick football.
Foster was arraigned last week and ordered to have no contact with the woman involved in the case while remaining free on $75,000 bond.
The 28-year-old alleged victim, who was his live-in girlfriend at the time, reportedly suffered bruises and a ruptured eardrum from the altercation.

Foster's arrest following the incident was his second in the span of 30 days. He is scheduled to meet with the team this week, a sitdown that could determine his future with the franchise. After an infamous domestic-violence incident involving former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice, the National Football League granted Commissioner Roger Goodell authority to give players a baseline six-game suspension for domestic violence allegations, even without a conviction, with the discretion to decrease or lengthen the time based on the circumstances of a case.
Reuben Foster's former college coach, Nick Saban, commented on the San Francisco 49ers linebacker's recent legal troubles.
The 49ers made Foster the 31st-overall pick in last year's draft. Foster just finished a solid rookie season and was expected to be a key part of the 49ers defense going forward. A blanket statement from the team described Thursday's charges as "disturbing" and that Foster "is aware that his place in our organization is under great scrutiny".
