In nearly two hours of video and related audio recordings documenting Steven Lamar Foster’s arrest, the trip to Hamilton Medical Center for blood tests and his booking into the Whitfield County jail, Foster at times speaks to the officers in Spanish, blames Gulf War Syndrome on the use of uranium in weapons in the First Gulf War and tells the story of putting a Central American man’s head on a spike.

Foster, of Dalton, is running against Republican incumbent Tom Graves of Ranger for the 14th Congressional District seat. Foster was arrested for DUI, a misdemeanor, by the Dalton Police Department on Sept. 23, 2017. He was found guilty by a jury on Monday after 15 minutes of deliberation and is in the Whitfield County jail. Sentencing before Judge Cindy Morris is set for Tuesday.

“I hope you got s---loads of audio because I want a copy of it on a FOIA,” Foster said to the officers. “You know what that is? That’s a Freedom of Information Act.”

According to District Attorney Bert Poston, tests by the state crime lab on the blood drawn from Foster indicated a .107 blood alcohol content level. The legal limit in Georgia is .08, and at the scene of the stop, deputies recorded a breathalyzer reading of .103.


After officers restrained Foster, he went on another tangent, criticizing airport security and questioning the sexual history of Hillary Rodham Clinton's brother.
