Under Alabama state criminal law, second-degree possession is a Class A misdemeanor.

Former Alabama All-American and Butkus Award victor and current San Francisco 49er Reuben Foster was arrested in Tuscaloosa on Friday.

Foster's bail was set at $2,500 and he was still in the Tuscaloosa County jail as of 10 p.m. Friday night.

In order to draft Foster, the 49ers dealt their second-round pick (No. 34 overall) and a fourth-rounder acquired from the Chicago Bears earlier on draft night (No. 111 overall) to the Seattle Seahawks for pick No. 31. According to former sports agent and writer for CBS Sports, Joel Correy, Foster could lose a substantial sum from his rookie contract in future years.

Because of the diluted sample, Foster entered the league in the substance-abuse program.

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.

"We spoke with Reuben about that and felt comfortable about that situation, as well", Lynch said at the time.
