Reuben Foster - San Francisco 49ers - 2018 Player Profile

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster "threw a dog across the room" before he was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, according to a newpolice report.

Foster is facing charges of domestic violence, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime and possessing an assault weapon stemming from a February 11 incident involving his now former girlfriend Elissa Ennis.

According to a new report, Foster is accused of throwing a dog across a room hours before Ennis called police in Los Gatos.

Through her attorney Stephanie Rickard, Ennis maintains that the video depicts a fight she had with another woman that is the real cause of her injuries police documented the morning of Foster's arrest.

The woman says she fabricated the allegation, and pictures used as evidence against Foster actually came from another fight, with a woman.

Reuben Foster on Tuesday plead not guilty to three domestic violence charges and will have a preliminary hearing May 17 that could go a long way toward determining the outlook of his case. She also complained about her left ear, which turned out to have a ruptured ear drum. The latter is responsible for the weapons charge against Foster. The first was a loaded.38 caliber pistol and the second was a Sig Sauer short-barreled rifle, which was found loaded with a 30-round magazine on the floor of his bathroom and a round in the chamber. The lawyer said video evidence will back up Ennis' claims. Police also have contacted the driver whom Ennis flagged down and who allowed her to call 911, as well as an acquaintance of Ennis' whom she also called from the motorist's cellphone.

Foster, meanwhile, told police Ennis "would say anything" and that he never hit her.

Those are some of the previously unreported details found in the report filed by Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police officers who arrived at Foster's home that morning.

He called the road-rage video the "centerpiece" of the case, one that the district attorney's office must carefully review to figure out its authenticity and timeline.

Foster has been ordered to stay away from his accuser and remains free on $75,000 bail. In addition to the three felonies, Foster was also facing a misdemeanor ammunition charge, but the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office announced in April it would drop the charge since a judge had issued an injunction against the law in question. Foster physically threw her out both times.

Foster is not participating in the 49ers' offseason program during his legal trouble. The team has said it will cut him if it's proven he hit Ennis, and he still could face at least a six-week National Football League suspension based on its domestic-violence policy.

"We can promise you guys, if there's someone who ever hits their significant other, girlfriends, some person like that, that person is not going to be on our team", Shanahan said on April 26.
