  • San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster arrives at Santa Clara County Superior Court

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster "threw a dog across the room" before he was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend, according to a newpolice report.

Here's what they agree on: Their five-year relationship had gone sour, they had been arguing lately and that Foster smashed two of her cellphones, one just outside his house on February 11 as she was calling 911.

Adding pressure to the short turnaround time is the fact that prosecutors are still examining a potentially exonerating video provided by Foster's one-time accuser, former live-in girlfriend Elissa Ennis.

She has since recanted her story, saying that her injuries happened during a fight with another woman.

The Oakland A's and Seattle Mariners will also open the 2019 season at the Tokyo Dome in March. Major League Baseball is set to emulate the NFL as of next year and set up shop in London.

Barrows has brought to light several new details from the original report from the series of February 11 incidents, which are chronicled below.

During her initial statement, Ennis told police Foster threw her dog across the room, but that it didn't suffer any injuries. The dog was not injured, she told police. She said she fabricated the story of Foster hitting her 10 times because she wanted to ruin his career after their relationship went south. She said he dragged her downstairs by her hair and physically threw her out of his residence before locking the door. She returned through the backdoor, and Foster threw her out twice more, according to Barrows. The next morning, the argument continued and at some point Foster, 24, allegedly began throwing her clothes and belongings off a balcony.

In addition, Foster smashed the cell phone Ennis was using to call police and also destroyed an iPhone to prevent her from calling again.

Upon arriving at the scene, police took photos of Ennis' injuries, which included a swollen right lower lip, scratches and a cut on the back of her neck and a scrape on her left knee. The lawyer said video evidence will back up Ennis' claims. The police report also affirms previous reports contending that during the argument, Foster "punched her in the head 8 to 10 times", rupturing her eardrum. The latter is responsible for the weapons charge against Foster. Ennis then went to a nearby intersection and flagged down a driver to call 911.

China reiterates foreign enterprises' respect for its sovereignty, territorial integrity
As of Monday afternoon, the post had attracted more than 23,000 comments, majority critical of the US. It wasn't clear what China had demanded Qantas do, or what the penalties for non-compliance might be.

Multiple police officers noticed the strong smell of marijuana as they entered Foster's residence. All three are felonies. Foster has been excused from appearing there. Last week prosecutors asked for more time to review the video, which was found on social media and the origins of which are fuzzy.

The 49ers have not released Foster, although he hasn't been allowed access to the team's facilities.

General manager John Lynch said on April 23 that the 49ers are prepared to move on from Foster if the allegations are proven true. Lynch has preached patience, letting the legal process play out before making any decisions.

Foster remains with the 49ers, although the team has kept him participating in the offseason program while his case remains ongoing.
