The State Attorney’s Office in Florida has dropped the misdemeanor domestic violence charge against Reuben Foster, a linebacker for the Washington Redskins. The charge stemmed from an incident between Foster and his ex-girlfriend Elissa Ennis on November 24th, 2018
After the incident, Reuben was released from the San Francisco 49ers and was quickly picked up by the Washington Redskins, who took heat for picking up the 24-year-old. The team vowed that he would not suit up for the team until the legal process played out. If that’s true, the linebacker will be on the field soon.
Prosecutors for the case determined that there was insufficient evidence to file charges against Foster. They did not elaborate any further on the incident or their decision.
This was not the first time that Ennis and Foster had a domestic violence incident. Foster had been arrested in February of 2018 and charged with domestic violence and possession of an assault rifle after getting into an altercation with Ennis. The domestic violence charges were dismissed after Ennis took the stand and told the judge that she made up the story to get revenge on Foster. Later, Ennis admitted that she lied in court to protect her ex.
According to Ennis’s attorney, “The prosecutor’s choice is yet another slap in the face to Miss Ennis, just like the one Mr. Foster gave her in Tampa.”
