The former girlfriend of Reuben Foster testified at a preliminary hearing Thursday that she lied to police when she said the San Francisco 49ers linebacker attacked her Womens T. J. Watt Jersey
, allegations that led to a domestic violence case against him.
Elissa Ennis testified she lied because she wanted retribution after Foster tried to end their relationship, saying she was angry ”and I wanted to end him.” When asked by prosecutor Kevin Smith if Foster ever hit her, Ennis replied, ”No, sir. Not once.”
Foster was arrested after Ennis told police he dragged her by her hair, physically threw her out of their house, and punched her in the head eight to 10 times in February. He has been charged with domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, and possession of an assault weapon. Foster pleaded not guilty last week.
Ennis subsequently issued a statement through her attorney saying her injuries Womens Joey Bosa Jersey
, including a ruptured eardrum, were the result of a fight with another woman.
Prosecutors have said they will continue to pursue the case even if Ennis does not cooperate with the investigation. The prosecution said Ennis’ testimony couldn’t be trusted given inconsistencies throughout.
Judge Nona Klippen said she will rule Wednesday on whether the case should continue to trial.
Ennis, who testified against the advice of her attorney, said in court Thursday that she wanted to testify to ”do the right thing.”
She said Foster broke up with her after she got into the fight with another woman during a road rage incident in San Francisco. A 22-second video clip of that fight was presented as evidence in the case.
Ennis said she initially wanted to sue Foster. ”It was all about the money,” she said.
Ennis also testified that she stole more than $8,000 in cash from Foster, two Rolex watches and designer clothing.
During cross examination by Foster’s attorney Joshua Bentley, Ennis said she went to jail in 2011 for falsely accusing an ex-boyfriend of domestic violence.
If convicted of all charges, Foster could face up to 11 years in prison. Foster remains a member of the 49ers although the team hasn’t allowed him to participate in the offseason program while his case is ongoing.
The booing began early. The Detroit Lions scored on a touchdown on the game's first snap Womens Christian McCaffrey Jersey
, but it wasn't long before the fans at Ford Field sensed trouble.
An anemic first quarter of offense set the tone. By halftime, Matthew Stafford and the Lions were trailing, and in the third quarter, they unraveled completely.
The 48-17 loss to the New York Jets on Monday night was a dreadful debut for new coach Matt Patricia and a nightmare for Stafford, who was intercepted four times in a total debacle for Detroit.
"There's not a lot to be happy about," Patricia said.
The Lions fired coach Jim Caldwell after going 9-7 last season. The hope was Patricia could come over from New England's staff and lift Detroit to the next level, but expectations in Motown seemed a bit tempered after an unimpressive preseason.
Monday's rout brought little reason for optimism.
It actually began with a flourish for Detroit when Quandre Diggs intercepted rookie Sam Darnold on the first play from scrimmage and went 37 yards for a touchdown.
"You get a pick-6 on the first thing," defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois said. "You're on a high and you think everything else is going to go."
There were boos from the crowd later in the quarter, though. It was tied at 7 after one Womens Randall Cobb Jersey
, and the Lions had minus-2 yards of offense.
Down 17-10 at halftime, Detroit responded by going 75 yards in only four plays, tying the game on Stafford's 24-yard touchdown pass to Golden Tate.
Then the Jets reeled off 31 straight points before the end of the third.
Darnold found Quincy Enunwa for a 21-yard touchdown, quickly restoring New York's seven-point lead. Then Darron Lee intercepted Stafford and went 36 yards for a touchdown. Just 67 seconds later, the Jets scored again on a 78-yard punt return by Andre Roberts. New York capped the quarter when Isaiah Crowell scored on a 62-yard run with 54 seconds left, making the score 48-17.
Lee said the Jets had a read on Detroit's signals. Stafford went 27 of 46 for 286 yards, but it was his first four-interception game since 2013.
"I told those guys in there, 'I'll take this one,'" Stafford said. "Hope I never have to say that again."
Matt Cassel came in at quarterback briefly in the third when Stafford was crunched between two defenders while attempting a pass. The crowd cheered when Cassel went in again with 8:15 left in the fourth Authentic Stefon Diggs Jersey
, but he threw an interception shortly thereafter. Meanwhile, fans clad in green and white began a chorus of "J-E-T-S Jets! Jets! Jets!" chants that echoed around an otherwise deflated stadium.
"I'm going to be most disappointed in myself. That's where I always start," Patricia said. "I've got to do a better job, and that's always where I'm going to take it."
There was almost nothing for the Lions to feel good about. Kenny Golladay had seven catches for 114 yards. The pass rush managed a couple early sacks after a listless preseason.
But the offense couldn't build on Diggs' early touchdown. Rookie Kerryon Johnson had only five carries, and Detroit ran for just 39 yards. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah left with a shoulder injury.
By the end, Jets fans had set up a celebration in the mostly abandoned sections behind New York's sideline. There weren't many Detroit fans left. At least the empty seats couldn't boo. Authentic Womens Arden Key Jersey
