Reported by Gloucester Township Patch Editor Bill Duhart
A 73-year-old Blackwood grandmother was arrested Monday after she allegedly jumped on the back of a Gloucester Township policeman trying to break up a fight between her teenaged grandson and adopted son.
Cathyrine Foster, of Fraser Road, was charged with obstruction of justice. The incident was reported shortly after 7:30 p.m.
The fight between the siblings was so fierce police had to use pepper spray to break it up, they said. The 17 year old tried to flee after the fight was stopped. He was caught and subdued by several officers after allegedly resisting arrest. He was charged with aggravated assault on a policeman and held at the Lakeland juvenile detention center in Gloucester Township.
The 16-year-old was charged with simple assault and release, along with his grandmother, with a pending court date.
