SPARKS, GA (WALB) -A South Georgia Police Chief found himself on the other side of the law.

WALB obtained a mugshot of Marty Stafford from the Gwinnett County Detention Center. Stafford is the city of Spark's Chief of Police in Cook County.

We're still working on details of his arrest but we do know that he was booked into the Gwinnett County Detention Center Friday afternoon on False Imprisonment charges.

He was released the same day on an $11,200 bond. Last year, Stafford was given a criminal trespassing warning by police after a woman says he forced his way into her Gwinnett County apartment.
