Reuben Foster now the Redskins' problem after the fallout

Reuben Foster now the Redskins' problem after the fallout

49ers released him, but the Washington Redskins would soon claim the troubled linebacker off waivers.

It was the second domestic violence-related arrest for Foster since he's been in the league.

TMZ reported the State Attorney's Office in Florida has dismissed the misdemeanor domestic violence charge on November 24 that led to Foster's release from the San Francisco 49ers.

Foster was due in court Thursday for an arraignment, however it was canceled because the charge was dismissed.

Prosecutors concluded there was insufficient evidence to file charges against Foster after "a meticulous review of the facts of the case", said Estella Gray, director of communications for the State Attorney's Office. Despite Thursday's news, it's still far from certain whether Foster ever plays a down for the Redskins or any other National Football League team.

Now, it appears that the charges against Foster have been dropped, according to TMZ Sports.

Title race still in Liverpool's hands, says Kompany
Replays showed just how close the ball was to going over the line, with technology deeming it to be 1.3cm away from a goal. The game means Liverpool are now just four points clear of City at the top of the table with 17 games remaining.

Foster has had multiple run-ins with the law since being drafted by the 49ers 31st overall in 2017 out of Alabama.

His suspension for personal conduct was from his no contest plea of the weapons charge, which was reduced to a misdemeanor. Ennis testified during the preliminary hearing that she lied during her initial statements to investigators as revenge against Foster, who told her he wanted to break up with her.

The woman, Elissa Ennis, said on "Good Morning America" last month that Foster slapped her and pushed her at the Tampa hotel. He was sentenced to two years of probation, 232 hours of community service and $235 in fines.

Ennis, testifying against the advice of attorney Stephanie Rickard, said Foster never put his hands on her and that she said he did in an attempt to sue him for money after he broke up with her the morning of February 11.

Regardless of the result, it is still likely that Foster will be suspended by the NFL.
