According to local prosecutors, Foster's 28-year-old girlfriend had to flag down a passing auto after he threw her out of his Los Gatos house. When officers arrived, the girlfriend told them that Foster had dragged by her hair, physically threw her out of the house and punched her 8-10 times in the head.

However, the San Francisco 49ers' second-year starter does face three felony counts - domestic violence, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possessing an assault weapon.

If convicted on all charges, He faces up to 11 years in prison.

The report states that Foster will not participate in the 49ers' offseason program as the legal system takes its course. "As previously stated, his future with the team will be determined by the information revealed during the legal process", the statement reads. Foster is also being charged with misdemeanour possession of large capacity weapon magazine. Foster didn't enter a plea at his arraignment before Santa Clara Superior Court Judge Nona Klippen at the Hall of Justice in San Jose, California, and he left the courthouse after Klippen set his bail at $75,000.

Near Damascus, the pro-regime media reported that three missiles had been launched at the Damir airbase close to the capital. Washington, London and Paris said the strikes were a response to an alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria's Douma.

The charges stem from an incident on February 11, when the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department responded to a possible disturbance at a Los Gatos home and ended up arresting Foster. "This is way beyond a simple domestic violence case", says Steven Clark, legal analyst and former prosecutor.

The 49ers, who cut then starting cornerback Tremaine Brock in 2017 after he was arrested on domestic violence charges, said Foster would remain on the team roster for now.

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.
