GBI Arrests Bainbridge man in Battery investigation

On May 3, 2021, the Georgia Bureau arrested Jason Williams, 38, of Bainbridge, Ga., for battery.

On Saturday, April 24, 2021, at approximately 3:00 p.m., the GBI was requested by Bainbridge Public Safety Director Frank Green to assist in an investigation of a fight between an off-duty BPS officer Austin Spence and Williams in Bainbridge, Georgia.  During the fight, Williams punched Spence in the face multiple times.  The incident happened during a child custody exchange with Williams’ ex-wife.

After the fight, Williams went to BPS Headquarters to report the incident. Witnesses also made multiple calls to Decatur/Grady 911 to report the incident.

Williams was booked into the Decatur County Jail.  This case will be provided to the District Attorney and Solicitor General for prosecution when completed.

The investigation is active and ongoing.  Anyone with information is encouraged to call the GBI at 229-225-4090.
