Reuben Foster has been through a lot in the past year.
The former San Francisco 49ers linebacker was arrested in February 2018 on charges of domestic violence, threats, and possession of an assault weapon because of what his now-ex-girlfriend told authorities. After things started to progress fairly quickly, she would go on to retract everything she told investigators and admit to to lying about everything, including admitting to being in a fight with another woman that caused her injuries.
It went from bad to worse, to good, right back to bad again after the linebacker was arrested for domestic-violence battery in November, an allegation from the girl that he should’ve stayed away from.
49ers released him, but the Washington Redskins would soon claim the troubled linebacker off waivers.
Fast forward to January 2019 and Foster has seemingly escaped another domestic violence case, according to TMZ.
“TMZ Sports has obtained a court document filed on Jan. 2 which shows the State Attorney’s Office in Florida has dismissed the misdemeanor charge against Foster stemming from a Nov. 24 incident with his ex-girlfriend.
Foster was scheduled to appear at an arraignment in Hillsborough County, FL on Thursday morning — but the hearing was canceled after the notice of termination of prosecution was filed.
Unclear why prosecutors decided to drop the case against the 24-year-old linebacker — we’ve got calls out to everyone.”
