David Gibson, the former captain over the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office Uniform Patrol Division, has been arrested by the GBI on nine charges including aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated sexual battery, influencing witnesses, stalking, public indecency, sexual battery and violation of oath of office.

Gibson on Thursday morning turned himself in to the Spalding County Jail and is now being held in the Clayton County Jail.

The request for the GBI investigation came from Griffin Judicial Circuit District Attorney Scott Ballard after his office received an Internal Affairs report alleging Gibson had assaulted employees of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Office.

Additional victims who were not part of the Internal Affairs inquiry came forward and reported additional allegations of misconduct and criminal activity against Gibson.

The findings of the GBI investigation were presented to Ballard and criminal warrants for his arrest were obtained.

The investigation is ongoing and the full findings will be turned over to Ballard when completed.
