SAN JOSE, Calif. - San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster on Tuesday entered a plea of not guilty to three felony charges, including domestic violence, stemming from an incident involving his former girlfriend on February 11. The woman flagged down a stranger's vehicle on Shannon Road and asked the driver to call 911, according to the Santa Clara County district attorney's office.In April, Foster's girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, issued a statement through her attorney, Stephanie Rickard, recanting the allegations and saying she made up the story about Foster punching her repeatedly in an attempt to "trash his career" after Foster tried to break off the relationship.Rickard provided the district attorney video evidence just two weeks ago that the defense says will exonerate Foster.

New details emerged when police reports including 911 dispatch calls from the February incident were released. 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. Foster 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.

A judge is set to determine at a May 17 hearing whether the case - which includes a felony domestic violence charge - will to go to trial. Foster also allegedly dragged the victim by her hair and physically removed her from his house. The latter is responsible for the weapons charge against Foster.

Investigators also revealed two weapons were discovered on the scene: a loaded.38-caliber pistol and a Sig Sauer short-barreled rifle. Ennis reportedly said her pain level was at an eight on a scale of one-to-10.

A video of the fight with the woman has been turned over to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office. Police also have contacted the driver whom Ennis flagged down and who allowed her to call 911, as well as an acquaintance of Ennis' whom she also called from the motorist's cellphone. Ennis initially said those injuries were caused by Foster. The hearing was pushed back to Tuesday, May 8, to give prosecutors additional time to review evidence.

According to NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco, Foster's attorney, Josh Bentley, informed the court Tuesday of Foster's plea.

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". Despite his missed time, Foster finished second on the team in tackles.

General manager John Lynch said on April 23 that the 49ers are prepared to move on from Foster if the allegations are proven true.

Foster is not participating in the 49ers' offseason program during his legal trouble.

"We can promise you guys, if there's someone who ever hits their significant other, girlfriends, some person like that, that person is not going to be on our team", Shanahan said on April 26.
