CAMBRIDGE, Md.– A former candidate for Dorchester County sheriff was issued a criminal summons on assault and related charges.

Cambridge police said John Foster, of Cambridge, was issued a criminal summons for second-degree assault and false imprisonment in connection with an incident that allegedly happened July 7.
