Reuben Foster accuser Elissa Ennis comes forward: 49ers interfered with cops

Reuben Foster accuser Elissa Ennis comes forward: 49ers interfered with cops”

The 24-year-old linebacker is on the Commissioner's Exempt list as his charges in Tampa are settled.

Foster's alleged victim was Elissa Ennis, whom the linebacker has at times been in a relationship with over the past three years.

Previously, Foster was arrested in Los Gatos, California in February on the suspicion of battery when Ennis said he hit her "at least 10 times, dragged her out of the house, threw her on the ground, spit on her, broke her phone and threw their bulldog on her", ABC reported, according to the Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Department.

Almost one in four adult women report experiencing severe physical violence from an intimate partner, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and experts say trying to leave a violent relationship is the most unsafe time for victims.

Elissa Ennis appeared on "Good Morning America" Thursday where she accused Foster of roughing her up on 3 separate occasions. including the November 24 incident at a team hotel in Tampa, Florida.

"Even when I called the police, the 49ers came up there", Ennis said (H/T ESPN). "I have pictures of the 49ers coming up there trying to talk to the police telling them I'm the same ex-girlfriend that sat up there and lied".

The Niners issued the following statement in response to Ennis' comments regarding the incident in Tampa: "The 49ers fully cooperated with authorities, assisted in locating Mr". The two now weren't together. She says the two were trying to work on their relationship. If somebody you love come crying to you, telling you that they didn't have anybody, you'd do the same thing, too.

"I wanted him to go down". "And I just couldn't believe somebody picked him up in less than - how many hours - like, I was shocked".

She later recanted and said she had made up the story to ruin Foster's career and potentially sue him. I thought that he would change, ' she said. "Anybody in my position would do the same", Ennis said.

Ennis, who had bruises on her neck and face after the altercation, said this has happened several times with Foster.

"I did what I had to do for the person I loved". Ennis was also in disbelief.

"Because I loved him, and love will have to you doing things that's not in your best interest because (of) the person you love", Ennis said when asked why she lied.

Speaking of her decision in February to walk back her first domestic assault allegation against him, she said she was doing what she thought was right.

Foster is on the commissioner's exempt list and now ineligible to play, and a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that he would not appeal his placement on the list as the legal process plays out.
