comma with apposition (name): the horse thief Geroge Reynolds, known


United States
Do you guys see any problems with the sentence below? I think that I would just put a comma before "George Reynolds" but the purpose of the revision is to revise to eliminate fragments. Originally, I marked it correct because I do not see any sentence fragments within the sentence. It may also be correct. Thanks in advance.

7. One of the most notorious characters was the horse thief Geroge Reynolds, better known as "Big Nose George."

    I think the comma before George Reynolds is optional and can be omitted to "eliminate fragments". The comma after his name must stay, in my opinion.
