Reuben Foster Accuser Speaks About Alleged Abuse

The ex-girlfriend of NFL linebacker Reuben Foster, accusing him of abuse, is speaking out. During an interview this morning on Good Morning America, Elissa Ennis said she felt police officers didn’t believe her when she called 9-1-1 and told them she was attacked by Foster. She alleges at a hotel in Tampa, Florida on November 24th that Foster slapped her and gave her bruises on her face and neck and caused a concussion. She says Foster flipped out after she threatened to tell his new girlfriend that he flew her to Tampa where he had a game to work on their relationship. She also claims members from the San Francisco 49ers, Foster’s team at the time, went to officers that same night and tried to convince them that she was lying. She said she was shocked to learn Washington’s NFL team picked up Foster after the 49ers released him because of his second domestic-violence arrest. Foster has been placed on the commissioner’s exempt list and cannot practice or play, pending an investigation.
