ELMORE CO., AL (WSFA) - Elmore County Commissioner Joe Faulk has been arrested and charged with one count of using his office for personal gain, the Alabama Attorney General's office confirmed on Tuesday.

No other details surrounding Faulk's arrest have been released.

In July, the General Counsel for Ethics Commission confirmed that Faulk's case had been referred to the Attorney General's Office three months prior.

The commission said it found "probable cause" that Faulk had misused county resources, phones and computers for personal gain.
