Reuben Foster accuser in ‘hiding,’ but charges not going away: lawyer

New York Post

The woman accusing Washington Redskins linebacker Reuben Foster of domestic battery will cooperate with authorities, according to her attorney.

Adante Pointer — who represents Elissa Ennis, Foster’s on-and-off girlfriend of three years — told USA Today Sports that Ennis had injuries to her face and neck after the Saturday night incident at the San Francisco 49ers’ team hotel in Tampa, Florida, prior to the team’s road game against the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Ennis, who also may have suffered a concussion in the alleged attack, is now in “hiding” as she recovers, Pointer told the newspaper.

“We are moving forward,” Pointer said. “She will participate in the process.”

Ennis has also claimed Foster, 24, had previously abused her during an incident in February at a home in California, but she later recanted those allegations, saying they were part of a “money scheme” to ruin the 2017 first-round pick’s career after he tried to end their tumultuous relationship.

Pointer also countered rumors and unfounded allegations on social media that Ennis had instigated a physical confrontation with Foster prior to Sunday’s game, saying the NFL standout wanted her there by his side.

“He flew her to the game,” Pointer told the newspaper. “He paid her to go out there. This isn’t a situation where she just showed up with intentions of ruining somebody’s life.”

Pointer said flatly: “She was abused.”
