Charges dropped against Redskins’ Reuben Foster

According to TMZ Sports, Washington Redskins linebacker Reuben Foster had his charges from a November 24th domestic violence charge dismissed. TMZ obtained documents that were filed on Jan. 2 that shows that State Attorney’s Office in Florida threw out the charges.

Foster — who was claimed off waivers by the Redskins after being released by the San Francisco 49ers one day after the incident — was supposed to appear on Thursday in Hillsborough County, Florida. The hearing was canceled following a notice of termination of prosecution was filed.

It is unclear why the prosecutors dropped the case. This is the second-time he had charges dropped from an ex-girlfriend.

Foster allegedly attacked his former girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, at the team’s hotel in Tampa, Florida. It was the night before the team was supposed to play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

During an interview with “Good Morning America” on Dec. 6, Ennis said that the fight began after she threatened Foster’s new girlfriend. She said she was going to tell his new girlfriend that the NFL player paid for her way out to Tampa.

In February 2018, the two had another incident, where Foster was arrested for domestic violence. He was charged with felonies in the case, but when she went in front of the judge, Ennis said she concocted the story, as a way of revenge against Foster for breaking up with her.

The judge threw out those charges, as well.

After his arrest and being claimed off waivers by the Redskins, he was placed on the NFL’s Commissioner’s List.

This season, he appeared in six games. He had 29 tackles, including three tackles for a loss and two quarterback hits. He also had one pass deflection.
