49ers' Reuben Foster pleads not guilty to felony domestic violence, gun charges

In her initial allegations, Ennis told Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police that Foster "punched her in the head 8 to 10 times", rupturing her eardrum, but also that Foster hit her "hard, but not that hard", according to a police report.

Foster was originally charged with possession of a large capacity magazine, but an injunction issued by a district court prohibits the enforcement of misdemeanor ammunition charges.

After recanting her domestic violence accusation, Ennis said her injuries were suffered during a fight with another woman and not at the hands of Foster.

The morning after their argument, Ennis told police, Foster threw her clothing out the window of an upstairs balcony and told her to get out.

Foster 's friend stayed with Ennis and him that February 11 night, and claimed he was unaware of any altercation or argument.

The linebacker also dragged his girlfriend outside repeatedly, but she kept finding her way back inside, the report states.

Legal analyst Steven Clark said, "this is a gamble".

Through her attorney, Ennis recanted her February 11 accusation that Foster hurt her and that she was originally retaliating against him for ending their relationship.


Foster pleaded not guilty to the three felony charges against him: domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury; forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime; and possession of an assault weapon.

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows reported Foster also allegedly threw the victim's dog across a room in the home the night before the alleged assault. Foster, who had worn formal suits to the first two hearings, came in more casual khaki trousers and a blazer Tuesday.

Ennis, however, recanted some of the statements she made to authorities.

Foster has been ordered to stay away from his accuser and remains free on $75,000 bail.

- Multiple police officers commented on the strong smell of marijuana they encountered upon entering the home that morning. Despite his missed time, Foster finished second on the team in tackles.

Ennis, on the other hand, had a swollen right lower lip, scratches and a cut on the back of her neck, and a scraped left knee when police arrived at the scene. General manager John Lynch released a statement in April saying Foster "won't be a part of this organization going forward" if the allegations against him are proven to be true. We do feel like patience is the right approach right now.

'We continue to monitor all developments in this matter which is under review of the personal conduct policy, ' the National Football League said in a statement. It also gives the the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office less time to build their case in time for the hearing. "That's not to say it's going to make certain things OK because a guy is extremely talented, but you do have a little more rope with a guy like (Foster)". "We try to have a consistent standard, but of course, talent kind of dictates some level of that".
