The 28-year-old woman was taken to the hospital and treated for her injuries that included bruises and a ruptured eardrum.

Kevin Smith, deputy district attorney in the family violence unit, said the charges "underscore how serious we take all domestic violence in this county", noting that the Foster case is just one of almost 5,000 domestic violence cases his office handles each year. "We will continue to follow this serious matter".

Reuben Foster has played one season in the National Football League and his career may already be over. "Reuben is aware that his place in our great organization is under great scrutiny and will depend on what is learned through the legal process". Smith said, "We only hope that this case illuminates the tragic regularity of the rest".

According to a press release by the Santa Clara District Attorney, the former Alabama Crimson Tide linebacker could face over 11 years in prison if convicted for his charges, which includes a large capacity magazine possession misdemeanor.
