Former corrections officer arrested for assault

GADSDEN, AL (WBRC) - A former employee with the Etowah County Sheriff's Office has been arrested for assault.

Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin, in a statement Tuesday afternoon to FOX6 News, said Alfonso Horatio Kimble, 39, of Gadsden, was arrested and charged with one count of second degree assault.

Sheriff Entrekin said the incident occurred September 18 at a residence in Glencoe when Kimble apparently assaulted the victim after the two individuals got into a verbal argument.

Sheriff Entrekin said Trimble was employed by the Etowah County Sheriff's Office, as a corrections officer, and has since resigned from his position.

Kimble was booked into the Etowah County Detention Center and released on $2,500 bond.
