National Football League linebacker Reuben Foster's accuser recants domestic violence claim

AP Dai Sagano

Ennis, who testified against the advice of her attorney Stephanie Rickard, said she made up the story because she wanted to ruin Foster's career and sue him for money after he broke up with her on the morning of February 11.

Elissa Ennis testified she lied because she wanted retribution after Foster tried to end their relationship, saying she was angry "and I wanted to end him". I wanted him t go down.

Along with home violence, Foster was additionally charged with felony possession of an assault weapon after officers discovered a Sig Sauer 516 short-barreled rifle in his dwelling whereas investigating Ennis' home violence report.

Ennis also testified that she stole more than $8,000 in cash from Foster, two Rolex watches and designer clothing. "I took all his jewelry and designer stuff", said Enis. In one of the few interactions, she acknowledged following Foster to a vehicle dealership as he returned a Corvette, taking photos of the auto and then sending them to Foster via text with threats that she would sell them to TMZ.

She said the fight was captured on a cellphone and posted to Instagram, but the video has not yet surfaced. "I didn't think it would get this far".

49ers GM John Lynch previously stated Foster would be released if the allegations were true, but it looks like he will be able to get back to football.

She repeatedly said she couldn't fully remember what she told police - statements which ultimately led to the criminal charges against Foster. "I was pissed", Ennis said, via the San Jose Mercury News.

MLA Anand Singh Abducted by Central Government says
The 15-day window given to BJP to prove its majority was also deliberated upon, but the court refused to modify it, for now. The JD (S ) was making similar preparations for its legislators.

Said Bentley: "You knew in this case when Reuben Foster broke up with you that you were going to go to your playbook and ruin his career".

During her testimony, Ennis recanted her initial allegations. Smith, meanwhile, said that the ruptured eardrum she suffered would be consistent with Foster hitting her.

And Ennis' choice to testify Thursday was against the advice of her attorney. Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department detective Jason Wiens testified there was no evidence that Ennis and Foster had communicated between her accusations and the first time she told authorities that she had lied about Foster.

San Francisco took Foster with the No. 31 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but there were plenty of red flags surrounding him.

The domestic violence charge is the most serious, but Foster is also awaiting a verdict on a gun charge, which could potentially be dismissed to a misdemeanor.

Rather, Klippen will determine if there's enough probable cause to send the case to trial, at which point it appears unlikely, beyond reasonable doubt, the prosecution can prove enough to convict Foster after Ennis recanted her story.
