Runner on first. First baseman playing in front of base to guard against bunt. Batter swings and pops the ball up.

Ball drops foul about two feet behind first base and the runner, uncaught. No intent by runner to interfere.

I had nothing. Agree? Rules references in you have them please.
Nothing. Rule references are difficult when there's no call to make. But the runner breaks no rule in the interference section.
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, 'I drank what?'
