Tampa, FL (November 26, 2018) – Reuben Foster, a linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, was arrested yesterday, November 25, for first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence and battery. The 24-year-old was arrested around 9:10 p.m. last night in Tampa but then released on $2,000 bail.
The victim was identified as 28-year-old Elissa Ennis, an on-again-off-again girlfriend of his. On the day in question, the two were involved in a verbal altercation where Foster slapped a phone out of Ennis's hand, pushed her in the chest, and slapped her in her face. Officers who responded found that she had a one-inch scratch on her collarbone from the incident.
An ambulance was called to the scene and Foster was arrested. Foster was allegedly involved in a variety of criminal altercations over the past year.
