TAMPA, Fla. — 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested Saturday night on a domestic violence charge, about 15 hours before kickoff against the Buccaneers.

Foster was booked into jail at 11:11 p.m. ET, and no bond was immediately posted, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff arrest report. Foster was arrested on “probable cause” of battery (domestic violence), the report said.

The San Francisco Chronicle first reported the news of Foster’s arrest. The 49ers didn’t immediately release a statement.

According to the arrest report, Foster was detained at 9:10 p.m., local time, at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, where the 49ers are staying. The Tampa Police Department later released a statement saying “Foster and the victim lived together in the past and they were involved in an on-again-off-again relationship over the past three years.”

The statement sent to NBC Sports Bay Area read in full:

“Tampa Police officers responded to the Grand Hyatt hotel to investigate a domestic violence call shortly after 9 p.m. on November 24. Reuben Foster and the female victim were involved in a verbal altercation. The victim stated that during the altercation Foster slapped her phone out of her hand, pushed her in the chest area, and slapped her with an open hand on the right side of her face. Officers observed a one inch scratch on the victim’s left collar bone. 

“During the investigation officers learned that Foster and the victim lived together in the past and they were involved in an on-again-off-again relationship over the past three years. 

“Foster was charged with one count of first degree misdemeanor domestic violence and booked into the Hillsborough County Jail.” 

Tampa police later updated the police report, an officer told NBC Sports Bay Area, to state that the alleged open-handed slap was to the left side of the alleged victim’s face.
