DETROIT (AP) — An elected official from Pittsburgh and her husband have been charged following an altercation with police in a Detroit hotel.
The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office says 41-year-old Chelsa Wagner faces charges of resisting police, a felony, and disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. Her husband, Khari Mosley, is also charged with disorderly conduct, as well as misdemeanor disturbing the peace. Wagner, a Democrat, is the Allegheny County controller.
Wagner was arrested March 6 after hotel officials reported a disturbance. Security had asked Mosley to leave after he was not allowed up to his room because he didn't have his key.
Police say Wagner prevented an officer from removing Mosley and pushed the officer. She and Mosley have disputed those accounts.
