A reporter for Detroit News was given access to the police body cam video. According to that reporter, the videos shows police putting Mosley into a police car. Officers then head to Wagner's hotel room.

The door to the room was open, the report said, so police walked inside and asked Wagner to verify that Mosley is her husband. Wagner is heard on the video repeatedly giggling, the report said.

Wagner and Mosley are both charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. Additionally, she is charged with two counts of resisting arrest and obstruction of justice, a felony.

The Detroit News reported Thursday that they both appeared for a preliminary hearing and she will face a trial.

At the hearing police body cam footage of the incident was also released. Watch the video above to see the altercation from this point of view.
