BENTON - A Bossier City councilman has been arrested on charges of bank fraud.

Bossier City Councilman James "Chubby" Knight turned himself into police.

The charges stem from an investigation into a secret shopper scam Knight claimed he was a victim of. 

Knight's attorney says he thinks the charges are politically motivated.

He says that when Knight announced he was running for mayor the charges came out of nowhere.
