NFL Star Reuben Foster Has Domestic Violence Charges Abruptly Dropped
It’s unclear why the charges were dropped. Foster was scheduled to appear at an arraignment in Florida on Thursday before the notice of termination of prosecution was filed. The misdemeanor charges stemmed from an incident on Nov. 24 that led the San Francisco 49ers to release the former first-round pick the next day. Foster’s ex-girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, alleged that Foster slapped her and broke her phone at the 49ers’ team hotel in Tampa. Foster’s attorney told TMZ that he believes the case was dropped due to credibility issues with Ennis. Ennis then testified under oath that she fabricated the story “as a money scheme.” He was then placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, which prevents him from playing until the league’s investigation is complete. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said that even though the team took a chance on Foster, it’s uncertain that he will ever see the field.
