San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges stemming from allegations that he attacked his then-girlfriend in their home in February. The woman flagged down a stranger's auto on Shannon Road and asked the driver to call 911, according to the Santa Clara County district attorney's office.In April, Foster's girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, issued a statement through her attorney, Stephanie Rickard, recanting the allegations and saying she made up the story about Foster punching her repeatedly in an attempt to "trash his career" after Foster tried to break off the relationship.Rickard provided the district attorney video evidence just two weeks ago that the defense says will exonerate Foster.
In her original report, Ennis, 28, told police that she and Foster had been arguing the night before and he had become angry and thrown her dog across the room. Foster is accused of dragging his live-in girlfriend and punching her "8 to 10 times".
The District Attorney's Office said it is reviewing the video provided by Ennis and Rickard who maintain it shows that Ennis' injuries stemmed from an unrelated fight with another woman.
Prosecutors say they are looking into that claim, but for now Foster is charged with domestic violence and possession of an assault weapon.
Maiocco also reported Foster will be due in court May 17 for a preliminary hearing. He is also charged with attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, another felony. The latter was found on the floor of the bathroom with a loaded 30-round magazine and a round in the chamber.
Ennis released a statement through her attorney on April 26 saying she can prove Foster was not responsible for injuries she sustained in February.
"She was extremely upset and told him if he broke up with her she would 'trash his career, '" said the attorney via the statement.
Police reportedly found a loaded.38 caliber pistol and a Sig Sauer rifle, the assault weapon listed as part of his three felony charges last month.
The next morning, the argument continued and at some point Foster, 24, allegedly began throwing her clothes and belongings off a balcony. A friend of Foster's was staying at the house, though he says he was in his room at the time of the incident and didn't witness any argument or altercation.
The DA's office said Foster bruised Ennis and ruptured her eardrum. The 49ers have said Foster will be held out of team activities until the case is resolved.
If she does testify, the district attorney's office could turn to other evidence - her calls to 911, medical records and other witness testimony - in its case against Foster.
General manager John Lynch said on April 23 that the 49ers are prepared to move on from Foster if the allegations are proven true. "That's the standard we want on our team, that's the standard we are going to operate under".
