Prichard City Councilman Derrick Griffin was arrested Tuesday on two counts of insurance fraud stemming from a December 2023 grand jury indictment.

Griffin allegedly made fraudulent representations on two different occasions in connection with an insurance policy on a vehicle he did not own, according to the Mobile County District Attorney.

"This indictment is part of a larger investigation," said Mobile County District Attorney Keith Blackwood. "The public interest is always served by pursuing justice."

Griffin was given a $5,000 bond for each count of insurance fraud, $10,000 total.
