BLOUNTVILLE — A Sullivan County commissioner has been indicted for alleged actions in his role as a county constable, where he is accused of signing off on court documents that he did not serve.

On Tuesday morning, Doug Woods turned himself in to police on two counts of perjury. The charges were leveled last week by a Sullivan County grand jury.

According to the presentment, Woods "did unlawfully and with the intent to deceive, make a false statement under oath." Court records indicate that Woods reportedly lied about serving court papers in a civil case. Read more about Woods from the Kingsport Times News.
