Reuben Foster's ex falsely accused another man of domestic violence in 2011

In testimony on Thursday, the former girlfriend of San Francisco 49er Reuben Foster recanted her accusations of domestic violence against the linebacker.

According to Foster's attorney, via the Sacramento Bee, Ennis "was extremely upset and told him if he broke up with her she would trash his career".

Ennis initially told police that he struck her eight to 10 times with a closed fist, smashed her cell phone and dragged her by her hair down some stairs and out of his Los Gatos home, but she has since recanted that story through her attorney, saying. I apologize to everyone'. Two months later, accuser Elissa Ennis, the linebacker's ex-girlfriend, admitted that he had never hit her.

'I'm sorry, ' Ennis tearfully admitted in court on Thursday, according to ESPN.'I really am. "I didn't think it would get this far".

According to Inman, Ennis testified that she "was threatening Reuben" and that she was "going to f-k up his career" over their breakup. She said she took jewelry and money and stored it in a safe in Louisiana.

Ennis also testified that while Foster did not hit her once, she actually hit him with a hanger. After another driver cut her off, Ennis said she returned the favor and then her and the driver of the other vehicle began motioning at each other before pulling to the side of the road.

When police arrived at Foster's residence in February, they found a SIG Sauer 516 short-barreled rifle, a loaded.38 caliber revolver and said that the home smelled of marijuana, which is legal in the state of California but banned by the NFL. That man testified that Ennis approached his vehicle in a calm manner and asked to use his phone.

The 49ers said they will release Foster if the allegations prove true. That determination by Judge Nona Klippen has not been made as of this posting.
