Georgia News

DALTON, Ga. (AP) — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has arrested a State Patrol trooper accused of providing agents with false statements or writings.

A news release from GBI Public Affairs Director Nelly Miles says that on Wednesday agents arrested and booked Timothy Williams into Whitfield County Jail on the felony charge. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Georgia’s Department of Public Safety has also fired him from his position as a state trooper.

The GBI release says the agency launched a public official’s investigation into Williams after Dalton police alleged they responded to 911 call in which he was involved. Officers said a physical altercation possibly occurred at a home Williams was at.

No additional details were provided on the altercation or the false statements he’s accused of making.

The GBI investigation is ongoing.
