Christopher Wayne Foster, 27, of Wolf Drive in Rogers was also arrested Wednesday in connection with aggravated assault, kidnapping and theft of property. Foster was arrested after an investigation into an incident reported about p.
Tuesday, according to a news release from the Bentonville Police Department. The woman told officers she had known Foster for about two months and worked for him as a personal assistant after answering an ad on craigslist. When she learned Foster was allegedly involved in a prostitution ring, she quit, according to police.
She told investigators she met with Foster on Tuesday because he promised to pay her back wages. However, when she got into the vehicle, Foster grabbed her cell phone and sped away, the woman told police.
The woman received minor injuries when she jumped from the vehicle. At the time of his arrest, Foster was accompanied by two women, ages 19 and 20, determined by police to be employed by Foster as prostitutes, according to the news release. One of the women told police she met Foster after she learned on Facebook he was looking for a personal assistant.
Foster served as a volunteer coach with the Central Junior High School football team last semester. Volunteer coach applications are reviewed by Springdale Athletic Director Annette Scogin, who meets with the applicants. She then forwards the application to Hartzell Jones, deputy superintendent for personnel, and he sends the application to Superintendent Jim Rollins.
He also worked one and a half days as substitute teacher for the school. Foster worked once with the team since the regular season ended at a spring football skills camp, said Rick Schaeffer, spokesman for the district.
He was taken off the list of approved coaches Thursday when officials received word of his arrest. Watts said he did not know of any problems with Foster during his time as a volunteer or substitute.
Foster filled out a volunteer information form saying he attended the University of Arkansas. Foster was being held Thursday in the Benton County Jail with no bond set. Brett Wayne Foster, 21, of Fayetteville was arrested in connection with two counts of first-degree sexual assault.
He allegedly had sex with a year-old student who was a member of the Springdale Har-Ber High School track team. ZIP: 72704 72703 72701 72702
