The San Francisco 49ers remain winless this 2017 season, and tough luck continues to haunt them, even off the field. Joe Eskenazi of Misson Local reported that linebackers Reuben Foster and Ray-Ray Armstrong had a run-in with two armed men early Monday morning at a San Francisco nightclub.
Foster and Armstrong noticed a white Audi circling the premises of the club, speculating that they were about to be robbed. The two sought the assistance of a security guard to escort them out of the venue, but the two would-be robbers – one carrying an assault rifle and the other a handgun – were not deterred in confronting their targets.
After the assailants’ weapons were drawn, Foster and Armstrong “turned and ran like hell” away from the scene and into a nearby hotel, where they immediately called the police for help. Nobody was hurt in the incident, and the two armed men escaped empty-handed.
Considering the out-going and lavish lifestyles of several professional athletes, attempted robberies against them have certainly been prevalent in the country.
But, in this particular case, Foster and Armstrong came out as the bigger men by fleeing to safety rather than confronting the situation head on and risking their lives.
