PITTSBURGH — Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner has agreed to a plea deal with authorities in Detroit over an altercation at a hotel, Channel 11’s Rick Earle reported Thursday.
Wagner pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor of disturbing the peace and will get six months of probation, as well as a fine of $653. In addition, the most serious charge of resisting arrest will be dismissed.
Wagner and her husband, Khari Mosley, were traveling and attended a concert March 6 in Detroit. After the show, Wagner went to bed while her husband went to the hotel bar.
Police said Mosley was intoxicated and had been causing problems, then couldn’t get back into the hotel room because he did not have a key and his name was not on the reservation.
Investigators said Wagner grabbed a police officer while they were arresting her husband on suspicion of disorderly conduct.

In November, a judge declared a mistrial after a jury found her not guilty of disorderly conduct but could not reach a verdict on the more serious charge of resisting and obstructing the police.
A new trial date was later scheduled.
Wagner’s husband was acquitted in July.
