Floyd County Commissioner Gary Fricks was arrested in Calhoun late last week on a variety of traffic charges.
Fricks was driving with a suspended license, with no insurance and with tags registered to another vehicle, police said. He was booked into the Gordon County Jail Friday night and posted bond. Fricks, a Republican candidate for Floyd County Commissioner, does not face opposition for a new term this November.
According to statements made to Rome area news media, Fricks said that he "just screwed up."
