The judge cleared the courtroom to allow for Ennis to compose herself and continue with her testimony, during which she admitted that she was trying to ruin Foster's National Football League career after he said he was leaving her. Klippen is going to take six days to deliberate, pour over the evidence and determine if Ennis was lying when she made her initial claims February 11, as Ennis said Thursday, or if Ennis is lying now.
When police arrived at Foster's house after Ennis called 911, they found scratches and marks on various parts of her body.
On Thursday, Ennis finally testified and said she made the whole thing up and that Foster didn't hit her once, according to Cam Inman, the 49ers reporter for the Bay Area News.
Ennis admitted to getting into a road rage fight in San Francisco where she fought one or two women for 15 minutes on the side of a street. "I apologize to everybody".
According to Inman, Ennis testified that she falsely accused an ex-boyfriend of domestic assault in 2011.
Foster was in attendance throughout the testimony. The 49ers linebacker was arrested on felony domestic violence and weapons charges in February. The victim also said Foster threw her dog, which was not injured.
The 49ers drafted Foster 31st general final 12 months after questions on his well being and character prompted him to drop from being a attainable high 10 choose.

Smith, for his part, said it was the right call to give him a flagrant. "One of my guys was down, and I took offense to it". Horford was grateful for Smart's support, adding: "I felt like it was uncalled for, that type of play". "He's in the air".
Video of the fight was given to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office for review in late April, causing the district attorney to delay Foster's plea hearing until last week.
But he said her injuries might not necessarily be consistent with an altercation with Foster when cross examined by Foster's attorney.
Ennis also described her actions as "a money scheme", and said that after Foster was arrested, she took $8,000 in cash and two Rolex watches that belonged to him while returning to her home state of Louisiana.
In dramatic two-hour testimony on Thursday, Foster broke down in tears repeatedly as she said she had made her story up.
The preliminary hearing was expected to re-convene at 1:30 p.m. PT. Judge Klippen will decide by the end of the day whether there is reason for the charges to move forward to a jury trial in July.
