An arrest report from the Hillsborou­gh County Sheriff ’s office said Foster was booked into jail on Saturday and was being held without bail. Tampa police spokeswoma­n Janelle McGregor said a woman told police that Foster slapped her phone out of her hand, pushed her in the chest area and slapped her with an open hand on the right side of her face. McGregor said officers observed a one-inch scratch on the accuser’s left collarbone.
