On Friday night, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested and charged with second degree possession of marijuana in Alabama.

Bond was set at $2,500 for Foster, who was a first-team All-American for the Crimson Tide in 2016 and also won the Butkus Award. While that's now legal in California, the state where Foster plays football, possessing marijuana remains a crime in Alabama.

Foster entered the Alabama locker room following its 24-6 win against Clemson in this season's Sugar Bowl, much to the delight of his former defensive teammates, who mobbed him upon his arrival. His urine sample was found to have been diluted, which was treated the same as a positive test.

But the president had sharp criticism for Bannon, accusing him of unfairly taking credit for his election win. Bannon's departure from Breitbart came as a shock to some of his allies.

Still, the 49ers drafted Foster with the 31st pick in the draft.

"We spoke with Reuben about that and felt comfortable about that situation, as well", Lynch said at the time. It sure sounded like he had a long day, which you can imagine. He made 72 tackles and was credited with one pass defensed. Foster missed six games with a knee injury in the 2017 season.
