Monterey Man Faces Assault Charges

An April 18th court date has been set for a Monterey man charged with domestic assault and child abuse after an allegedly drunken tirade this week.  Police say it happened at the East Louis Avenue home of 42-year-old Eric Preston Foster. According to authorities, Foster was intoxicated when he arrived home and allegedly struck his wife and began breaking things around the house. He is also accused of picking up a crib with his one-year-old child in it and slamming the crib back down.  After being taken into custody, police learned that Foster was also wanted on a fugitive warrant out of Indiana. He was being held without bond pending extradition.
