GBI arrests Trenton commissioner

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has arrested a Trenton city commissioner on charges of sexual battery and making false statements.

Charles Cannon, 36, faces one count of each charge, GBI Special Agent in Charge Jerry Scott said.

The investigation was requested by the Trenton Police Department and has been ongoing for three months, Scott said in a news release.

Cannon was arrested in August on charges of simple battery after getting into a fight with a lifelong friend.

At the time, police said the GBI would step in to investigate the incident to avoid a conflict of interest.
