49ers linebacker Reuben Foster was arrested by Tuscaloosa, Ala. police on Friday for possession of marijuana, according to the Sheriff of Tuscaloosa County's website.

It wouldn't have been a crime for the San Francisco 49ers rookie if he was still in California, but Alabama still hasn't legalized marijuana.

A second-degree marijuana possession charge is considered a Class A misdemeanor in Alabama. Bail was set a time $2,500, reported.

Foster is no stranger to trouble as his diluted urine sample for a drug test at the Scouting Combine caused him to slip to the 31st pick in the 2017 draft.

The arrest comes nearly two weeks after Foster wrapped up a rookie season in which he finished second on the 49ers in tackles with 72 in 10 games. On Saturday, Corry reported that language in Foster's rookie contract voids the guaranteed salary for the remainder of Foster's deal if he's fined under National Football League drug policies.
