A man charged with illegally detaining two teenage girls in a church parking lot says he has been wrongfully accused and he was only watching out for his church when the girls pulled into the parking lot at night, a parking lot he says had a no trespassing sign.The man, Claude Eugene Foster, 81, will appear before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke this Tuesday on the charge of misdemeanor false imprisonment. He is accused of stopping two girls in the parking lot of Sunny Hills Baptist Church and asking what they were doing. The warrant claims Foster flashed a star-type badge and said he was a former officer of the law, something Foster disputes, saying he told the girls he was a former security officer.
