DETROIT – An elected official from Pittsburgh and her husband have been arraigned on charges stemming from an altercation with Detroit police at a hotel.
Chelsa Wagner and Khari Mosley were arraigned in Detroit Monday. Both are accused of disorderly conduct. Wagner, the Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, controller, also faces a felony resisting police charge.
A judge entered not-guilty pleas for them. They were released on bond. Their next hearings are April 1.
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.
Defense attorney Tom Fitzpatrick says his clients intend to sue the city and hotel.
