Former Alabama LB Foster arrested in Tuscaloosa

Former Alabama LB Foster arrested in Tuscaloosa

Foster, 23, a native of Auburn, Ala., was arrested by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office.

The charge of second-degree marijuana possession in Alabama comes when an individual possesses for personal use.

Foster failed a drug test at the NFL Combine and hosted a party that was sponsored by a vaporizer company during the NFL draft.




The former Alabama linebacker was a first-team All-American for the Crimson Tide in 2016 and won the Butkus Award. He had a diluted urine sample and an argument at the hospital with a worker while waiting for a physical. Asked about that sponsorship at his introductory press conference, Foster said, "This is a new leaf and I'm not answering that". "You know, I would anticipate people maybe questioning some of his character, but I would tell you his character's what drew us to him".

"But they (the 49ers) gave me a chance. I'm just ready to go hard and work hard and just prove that I'm worthy of that spot and they're not going to regret it".

Because of the diluted sample, Foster entered the league in the substance-abuse program. He missed time with a high ankle sprain and rib injuries, and dealt with multiple shoulder stingers late in the season. He was named the NFL Rookie of the Month in November.
