A Kent Street man was charged with several offenses Friday after reportedly striking a city police officer's patrol cruiser. According to reports, Patrolman Steve Adkins was at his home at 3:44 a.m. walking from his garage to his back porch when he heard a loud stereo and saw a vehicle fail to stop at a stop sign then go around the front of his house. He heard a loud banging noise and ran through his house and out the front door, where a woman yelled that someone had just struck his cruiser. Adkins got into the patrol car and pursued the vehicle through several streets at a high rate of speed before it finally pulled over, and the driver, Darvis E. Foster, 35, exited, reportedly smelling of alcohol. Adkins reported seeing Foster earlier, standing outside the New Dimension Bar. According to reports, a piece of Foster's vehicle was wedged on Adkins' cruiser, which sustained damage to the front fender and both doors. At the police station, Foster reportedly became aggressive and made remarks to Adkins, including a comment about the officer's teenage son, whom he said Foster knows from coaching. Foster was charged with OVI, leaving the scene, failure to control and a stop sign violation.
