A Fall River man, Gregory Foster, has been sentenced to prison after injuring a police officer following a domestic incident last year, according to the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office. Foster pled guilty to charges including domestic assault and battery, resisting arrest, leaving the scene of personal injury, and operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license. He was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison, with 18 months to serve, and the balance of the sentence suspended for two years. The AG’s office said that if Foster gets into more legal trouble during those two years, he could be liable to serve the entire jail term. On Oct. 1, 2022, Foster accelerated in his car, forcing one of the officers to grab onto the car to avoid being run over and was dragged for about 15 to 20 feet before letting go. The officer was transported to the hospital with injuries and is currently still in physical therapy recovering. Foster hit another car while fleeing and was stopped in Rhode Island charged with driving under the influence.
