The Forrest City Times-Herald reports an arrest there Tuesday on an election law violation related to the November general election.

Details were scant, but the newspaper said Louise Fields, 63, a member of the Forrest City City Council, was charged with possession of absentee ballots with intention to defraud. The newspaper said she was investigated, but not charged, in 2008 in an episode in which 200 absentee ballots were seized.
