Foster was a permanent team captain for Alabama during the 2016 season, leading the team with 115 tackles.

A former Alabama star linebacker was arrested in Tuscaloosa on Friday.

According to Tuscaloosa police, officers encountered Foster near the intersection of Highway 69 South and Oscar Baxter Drive.

The arrest comes almost two weeks after Foster closed out his rookie season, finishing second on the 49ers in tackles with 72 in 10 games.

The arrest is noteworthy in part because Foster failed a drug test at the National Football League draft combine last spring.

Foster battled a variety of injuries throughout his rookie season in San Francisco, including an ankle sprain and recurring shoulder stingers that were a red flag for some teams before last spring's NFL Draft.
