Reuben Foster’s girlfriend, Elisa Ennis, hired a lawyer this week. And the lawyer, Stephanie Rickard, released a statement Wednesday: “(Foster) did not strike her, injure her or threaten her.”
According to the lawyer, Ennis suffered her injuries during a fight with another woman, and blamed Foster when he tried to break up with her. There is video evidence of the fight between Foster’s girlfriend and the other woman, according to Rickard, who says Ennis told the District Attorney she wanted to recant her statement, but he pressed charges anyway.
I have three initial thoughts:
- This seems like the only story that could get Foster off the hook.
- It’s interesting it came out roughly 24 hours before the draft.
- It’s interesting the D.A. would press charges having known there was video evidence that allegedly disproved his case. He must still think he can win.
What are your initial thoughts?
