BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- A Brunswick City Commissioner is behind bars. A local pastor tells Action News, James Henry Brooks Sr. was arrested at home Thursday evening.
According to the Glynn County Jail, Brooks is charged with influencing a witness and obstruction of a law enforcement officer. He is in jail under no bond.
Action News met with Commissioner Brooks earlier this week during an interview with family members of De'marquise Elkins, one of the teens accused in the murder of a Brunswick baby. Action News also captured video of Brooks walking with the Elkins family in front of the courthouse on Monday. Brooks told Action News he is related to De'marquise Elkins.
At this time, police have not said whether the charges Brooks faces are linked to the Brunswick baby murder case.
Brooks was also arrested in 2012 on a bribery charge.

1. I think this makes it 4 relatives of De'marquise Elkins who have been arrested now
mom and aunt for lying to police
sister and mom (again) for getting rid of the murder weapon
and now this guy. and he's already been to jail in the past for bribery
what a family
