FRANKLIN (AP) — A Williamson County commissioner is facing a gun charge.

According to WKRN-TV (http://bit.ly/1wPoKxs), Barb Sturgeon turned herself in on Friday after a grand jury charged her with carrying or possessing a gun on school grounds.

The charges stem from a November incident in which Sturgeon reportedly carried a gun into a work session for the Williamson County School Board.

"The commissioner had a purse which resembled a purse that she had previously displayed on Facebook, which had a holster and a pistol inside," Sheriff Jeff Long said in a statement. "A weapon was found in her purse."

A spokeswoman for the Williamson County Sheriff's Office said Sturgeon bonded out Friday after paying $5,000. She is due in court on Dec. 15.
