49ers Release Reuben Foster After Elissa Ennis Accuses Him of Domestic Violence

Reuben Foster, a former college football star at Alabama, was arrested in Tampa Bay on domestic violence charges Saturday night at the San Francisco 49ers' team hotel.

Foster was arrested by Tampa police at 9:10 p.m.at the Grand Hyatt hotel where the team is staying before playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

The 49ers posted a tweet Sunday morning saying Foster, 24, was being released from the team. Foster's bond was set at $2,000 during a bail hearing Sunday morning along with orders to avoid any contact with the accuser.

TAMPA, Fla. - The San Francisco 49ers rolled the dice when they drafted Reuben Foster. During the altercation, he allegedly slapped the victim's face and pushed her in the chest area.

A judge dismissed the domestic violence charges on May 23, ruling the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office did not show sufficient evidence to proceed with the case. Officers observed a one-inch scratch on Ennis' left collarbone, according to the police report.

Foster and the woman have been in an "on-again-off again relationship over the past three years" and have lived together in the past, according to police.

Foster's arrest Saturday night on a charge of misdemeanor domestic violence against the woman who previously accused him of felony domestic violence ended Foster's short but tumultuous tenure with the 49ers.

That incident took place just months after Ennis recanted domestic violence allegations against Foster, made following an incident on February 11. On the witness stand in May, she recanted her claim that Foster of assaulted her in retaliation for their breakup.

'I feel strongly about that.

Foster has struggled on the field this season as well as he has dealt with shoulder and hamstring injuries.

"That doesn't mean we don't love him", Lynch said. I believe in the kid and I think it's going to be, he's going to be a great player for this organization for a long time. The weapons charge was reduced to a misdemeanor and Foster pleaded no contest to that in June.

Foster was sentenced in July to two years' probation, 232 hours of community service, and $235 in fines.

Foster was suspended the first two games of this season for violating the NFL's conduct and substance-abuse policies.

Satisfied that Foster could handle being a professional, the 49ers stopped Foster's slide, trading up to take him at No. 31 overall.
