DETROIT, MI - The attorney for a teenager who alleges he was the victim of inappropriate behavior with former Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh filed a criminal report with the Madison Heights Police Department on Saturday.
The allegations against Pugh remain extremely vague. Further details, if any, are likely to remain unavailable until Monday at the earliest, according to Madison Heights police.
Madison Heights Police Sgt. Richard Lochbiler told MLive Saturday evening that is when a detective will pursue the case.
"We don't give anything out on allegations," Lochbiler said, adding that information is only released to the public should an investigation result in charges against someone. There are currently no criminal charges against Pugh.
