According to booking records, Foster was charged with loitering to beg and violation of a promise to appear.

In other words, he was panhandling, and somebody felt threatened by a man who looks like a hairy version of Edvard Munch's The Scream and called the cops.

It's tough to look good in a mugshot, so maybe foster was just having a bad day. 

So don't write Mr. Foster off just yet -- a few weeks in the tub and a trip to the barber, we bet this guy comes out looking like a younger, taut Sean Connery. With a lot more hair.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
