City commissioner free on bond after assault, wife taken to hospital

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

A Cordele City Commissioner was released from jail on bond Thursday after being arrested for assaulting his wife.

Commissioner Jamie Fernandez is charged with aggravated assault.

The Crisp County Sheriff's Office said a magistrate granted Fernandez a bond of $3,000.

Police were called to the Fernandez home at Old Hatley Road around 8:30 a.m. Thursday.

Officers turned the case over to the GBI when they learned Fernandez was involved.

GBI special agent in charge of the Americus office Danny Jackson would only say Fernandez's wife was taken to Crisp Regional Medical Center for injuries to her head, shoulder, and neck.

Crisp Regional Hospital did not respond to inquiries about the condition of Fernandez's wife.

The city of Cordele web page says Jamie Fernandez is married to Lindsay Hardin Fernandez.

Jamie Fernandez was elected to the city commission in July 2011 and began serving his term on January 2012.
