An Assistant Attorney General in Michigan suspended after arrest
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - An assistant state attorney general has been suspended following his arrest on gun charges.
Eaton County Prosecutor Jeffrey Sauter told The Associated Press Wednesday that he authorized two misdemeanor warrants charging James Shell with possession of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol and reckless use of a firearm.
Shell's attorney is expected to turn him in for arraignment at a later date.
Shell also is president of the Grand Ledge School Board and was arrested Thursday. Sauter says no one was injured during the incident southwest of Lansing.
Attorney general's office spokesman John Sellek says that Shell was suspended pending the Eaton County investigation.
There's no listed home phone number for Shell. A message seeking comment was sent to his work email address.
