Dr. Jerry M. Foster, an oncologist at Williamson Medical Center is facing allegations he groped a nurse and made a series of pelvic thrusts toward her while in the presence of a patient, Franklin Police said.
Foster was indicted by a Williamson County grand jury this week, and was arrested at his home Wednesday afternoon, police said. The alleged incident took place in July.
The nurse claims Foster groped her in front of a patient and held her by the waist and made a series of pelvic thrusts while standing behind the nurse, holding her by the waist, police said.
An internal investigation by Williamson County Medical Center resulted in Foster no longer being allowed to practice at the facility, police said.
Foster is being held in the Williamson County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bond. He is scheduled to be arraigned in Williamson County Circuit Court on Aug. 24.
