Police video of the incident involving Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner and officers at a Detroit hotel reportedly shows her swearing at police and grabbing an officer's forearms, according to the Detroit News, which said it viewed the video Monday.
“The officers involved in this case used remarkable restraint while dealing with the combined actions of these defendants. The evidence will show that during the incident Ms. Wagner and Mr. Mosley disparaged the officers and the hotel employees," The Wayne County Prosecutor said.
Wagner spoke to Channel 11 shortly after the incident, and claimed she is the victim of a very large misunderstanding.
On Friday, Channel 11's Rick Earle learned that Wagner and Mosley will surrender to authorities in Detroit next week.
