Adams says police draw blood in all fatal incidents in which a driver is involved. He didn’t share details with The Sun Herald on Foster’s arrest but said his blood alcohol level would have been checked, resulting in the DUI causing death charge.

Foster is held without bond in the Jackson County jail and also faces misdemeanor driving without proof of insurance. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
