The San Francisco 49ers have released linebacker Reuben Foster after he was arrested on Saturday night at the team hotel in Tampa on charges of domestic violence.

"Tampa Police officers responded to the Grand Hyatt hotel to investigate a domestic violence call", Tampa police said in a short statement released early Sunday. But general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan said in April following a previous arrest for Foster on domestic violence charges that were eventually dropped that the team had a zero-tolerance policy on the issue.

Saturday's report says Foster and Ennis were in an "on-again-off-again" relationship for the past three years and that she stated Foster "slapped her phone out of her hand, pushed her in the chest area with one hand and slapped her with an open hand on the left side of the face" on Saturday night.

An arrest report from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office said Foster was booked into jail at 11:11 p.m. Saturday and was being held on $2,000 bail. The 49ers are in Tampa Bay, where they will play the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Back in May, a judge dropped charges accusing Foster of domestic violence, possession of an assault weapon, and criminal threats against Ennis, 28, his girlfriend at the time.

Foster was suspended for the first two games of this season for violating the NFL's conduct and substance-abuse policies stemming from his arrest in Alabama on a misdemeanor charge of possessing marijuana. They met with club ownership, and the decision to release Foster was agreed upon as an organization.

Foster missed six games as a rookie due to injury.

Foster was previously arrested on February 11 in Los Gatos, California, on suspicion of domestic violence, threats and possession of an assault weapon.

Foster has had multiple run-ins with the law since being drafted by the 49ers 31st overall in 2017.

He did not contest a misdemeanor weapons charge in June from a February arrest in Tuscaloosa. Foster registered 29 combined tackles with a pass defensed through six games this season. He was assigned 232 hours of community service and two years of probation that restricted him from possessing a gun or ammunition.
