The District Attorney's Office said it is reviewing the video provided by Ennis and Rickard who maintain it shows that Ennis' injuries stemmed from an unrelated fight with another woman.

"The big question moving forward at the preliminary hearing: Will the accuser come to court and testify under oath to what she said through her attorney publicly?" said Clark, who is now a defense attorney and legal analyst.

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster pleaded not guilty to felony domestic violence and weapons charges Tuesday while declining to waive his right to a speedy trial.

"Sadly too often, victims of domestic violence for a host of reasons choose not to cooperate with the process that holds their abusers accountable", Jim Demertzis, supervising attorney in the DA's family violence unit, said after an April 30 hearing.

According to the police report, Foster acknowledged breaking that phone as well as an iPhone during a previous argument in which he suspected her of secretly recording him with the phone.

Almost two weeks after the initial charges, Foster's ex-girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, recanted her accusations that Foster struck her eight-to-10 times in the head, rupturing her eardrum. He wanted to leave the house that morning and she was trying to keep him from doing so.

Foster destroyed two of her cell phones.

The weapon charge, based on a SIG Sauer 516 short-barreled rifle seized from his home the morning of his arrest, could also be tried separately.

Barrows also reported that officers smelled marijuana in Foster's Los Gatos home.

The recanting also stated that Ennis "was extremely upset and told him if he broke up with her she would "trash his career" " and that she "apologizes to everyone that may have been harmed in this case, especially Mr. Foster".

Police contacted the driver Ennis flagged down. Ennis made one from the motorist's cellphone and another from her phone. He is also charged with attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, another felony.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for May 17.On Feb. 11, Foster was arrested in Los Gatos after he allegedly dragged his girlfriend by the hair, physically threw her out of his house and punched her in the head at least eight times, reportedly puncturing her eardrum.

The attorney for the girlfriend of Reuben Foster, who accused Foster of domestic violence in February, is now saying Foster never injured her. In that statement, Ennis said injuries she initially attributed to a fight with Foster were actually the result of an altercation with another woman that happened around the same time. The lawyer said video evidence will back up Ennis' claims. Lynch did add that "patience is the right approach right now".

"If charges proven true, if he did hit this young lady, he won't be part of this organization", was Lynch's blunt statement. "We try to have a consistent standard, but of course, talent kind of dictates some level of that".
