49ers linebacker Reuben Foster pleads not guilty to domestic violence charges

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster arrives at Santa Clara County Superior Court

Almost two weeks after the initial charges, Foster's ex-girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, recanted her accusations that Foster struck her eight-to-10 times in the head, rupturing her eardrum.

If convicted of all charges, Foster could face up to 11 years in prison.

Foster is charged with felony domestic violence, forcefully attempting to dissuade a witness, and possession of an assault weapon.

In addition, Foster smashed the cell phone Ennis was using to call police and also destroyed an iPhone to prevent her from calling again.

In the police report, Ennis, 28, told investigators that they had been arguing the night before and that he threw her dog across a room, but apparently the dog was not injured. The incident reports made public this week revealed Ennis was bleeding from her swollen lips, had scrapes on her leg and bruises on her back. The police report also affirms previous reports contending that during the argument, Foster "punched her in the head 8 to 10 times", rupturing her eardrum.

However, Ennis last month recanted her account of the alleged domestic violence by Foster and handed over to the District Attorney's office a video that she claims shows her in an altercation with another female during which Ennis suffered her injuries.

The alleged victim in the case against Reuben Foster initially told police the 49ers linebacker threw her out of his Los Gatos home three times following an argument on the morning of February 11, the last time after hitting her approximately 10 times "hard, but not that hard" with his fist.

The Sacramento Bee reported police found two loaded guns at the home - a.38-caliber pistol and a Sig Sauer short-barreled rifle.

Ennis said the row continued the next day and escalated to where Foster began throwing her clothes and other belongings off the balcony.

More details have emerged about the domestic violence complaint against 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster, including a previously unreported allegation that he threw his ex-girlfriend's dog across a room. The identity of the driver, who was interviewed by police, and another guest staying at Foster's home, are potential witnesses.

Barrows also reported that officers smelled marijuana in Foster's Los Gatos home. All three are felonies.

"Sadly too often, victims of domestic violence for a host of reasons choose not to cooperate with the process that holds their abusers accountable", Jim Demertzis, supervising attorney in the DA's family violence unit, said after an April 30 hearing. Foster remains a member of the 49ers although the team hasn't allowed him to participate in the offseason program while his case is ongoing. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have each stated that if the charges against Foster are proven true, he will be released immediately. We do feel like patience is the right approach right now. "We try to have a consistent standard, but of course, talent kind of dictates some level of that".
