Judge gives reasons for dropping domestic violence charges against Reuben Foster

Reuben Foster

Reuben Foster had his domestic violence charges dropped on Wednesday and was cleared by the San Francisco 49ers to return to the team.

His case has taken many turns, with the alleged victim backing off her claims and saying she had actually gotten into a fight with another woman. She even admitted that her domestic violence claim was a money scheme.

According to Bay Area News Group reporter Cam Inman, the judge in the case dropped the domestic violence charge for several reasons. Those included the woman being “unusually calm” in her 911 call, a lack of photo evidence of injuries from being punched, and the woman’s history of false domestic violence claims.

Though the felony charges for domestic violence and making threats were dropped, Foster has a court date on June 6 for a misdemeanor weapons possession.

The 49ers have cleared Foster to return to the team for offseason activities.
