An altercation lands one small town politician in big trouble.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation tells WTOC they charged Soperton City Council member Royce Fowler with battery and terroristic threats.

They say it resulted from a dispute with a man on Aug. 4th.

According to Treutlen County Sheriff Tommy Courbin, Fowler turned himself in Monday and was released on bond.
