It appears the truth will eventually come out in the ongoing saga that is Reuben Foster.
Foster was arrested in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday on a domestic-violence battery charge, and according to the accuser’s attorney, she will cooperate in the ongoing investigation into her allegations against the NFL linebacker.
“We are moving forward,” said Adante Pointer (via USA Today). “She will participate in the process.”
Foster was released by the 49ers following his arrest over the weekend and eventually claimed off waivers by the Redskins in what head coach Jay Gruden called “a team decision.”
Foster was placed on the commissioner’s exempt list Tuesday following the Redskins’ announcement.
“There’s no guarantee he’s ever going to play here, to be honest with you,” Gruden told reporters. “He’s got a lot of work to do — personally, with the team, with the NFL, with himself — before he even thinks about playing football again.”
Foster had a previous domestic-violence charge dropped in May after his ex-girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, recanted her statements alleging Foster caused her bodily harm. According to reports, Ennis is the woman involved in Foster’s most recent incident.
The 24-year-old linebacker did serve a two-game suspension for a marijuana-related charge as well as a gun-possession charge stemming from the dropped domestic-violence charge.
