Reuben Foster accuser recants; trial decision on May 23

When a prosecutor asked why she called a third time, Enis said: "I wanted to be extra. It was about money, I wanted to sue him on my own", she said. The next morning, Ennis said Foster told her he wanted to end their relationship, which she felt was the result of him being "embarrassed" by what she had done.

The testimony came roughly three weeks after Ennis originally recanted her accusations in a statement released by her attorney, Stephanie Rickard. She says a friend sent her a link to a video of the fight posted on Instagram. "I do need to be very clear, abundantly clear, that if these costs are confirmed true, if Reuben certainly hit this younger girl, he will not be part of our group going ahead". "I'm sorry. I apologize to everyone". "I didn't think it would get this far".

"I went to jail", Ennis said, according to a report on Twitter by Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News. He was arrested on felony domestic violence and weapons charges in February, and charged in April despite her recanting the story later that month.

Ennis also admitted under cross-examination from Foster's attorney she had made up an allegation of domestic violence against a previous boyfriend in 2011 in Louisiana.

Judge Nona Klippen heard testimony from four witnesses, including Elissa Ennis, during Thursday's preliminary hearing and set a May 23 date for when she will decide whether the case will move to trial. The 49ers, who drafted the former Alabama star in the first round previous year, have placed him on an informal suspension while the "legal process" plays out, and have said that "if these charges are proven true", they will release him. Ennis said on the stand Thursday that she was coming from a hair appointment from the East Bay and didn't stop at a bar before getting cutting off another auto and getting into the altercation. Bentley argued that if there was no domestic violence crime, then the second count - which alleges that Foster smashed her cellphone - does not apply.

Ennis' ruptured ear drum is a key detail in the case and was cited when the District Attorney's office filed charges.

There's also the matter of her injuries. "It's one consistent statement she told police, her mother and her brother versus the inconsistent recent statement".
