A photo of the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office is shown. According to the office, a Fall River man named Gregory Foster has been sentenced to jail after causing injury to a police officer during a domestic incident that occurred last year. Foster admitted to multiple accusations, including domestic assault and battery, resisting arrest, departing the site of personal injury, and driving a vehicle with a suspended license. He was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in jail, with 18 months to serve and a two-year suspension for the remaining sentence. Foster will have to serve the entire jail term if he gets into more legal trouble within these two years. On October 1, 2022, Foster attempted to flee in his car while officers were collecting statements. During his attempt to escape, he accelerated his vehicle, forcing one of the officers to hold onto the car to avoid being run over before being dragged 15 to 20 feet. The injured officer was taken to the hospital and is presently receiving physical therapy for his injuries. Foster fled the scene of the incident and collided with another car before being apprehended in Rhode Island, where he was also charged with driving under the influence.
