DETROIT (AP) — An elected official from Pittsburgh has been bound over for trial on felony resisting and obstructing police and misdemeanor disorderly conduct stemming from an altercation at a Detroit hotel.

District Judge Ronald Giles ruled Thursday there’s enough evidence against Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner to proceed to trial. Prosecutors allege Wagner interfered with Detroit police while they prepared to remove her husband, Khari Mosley, from the Westin Book Cadillac hotel on March 6. The couple was in Detroit for a concert.

The Detroit News reports police body camera footage presented during the hearing showed Wagner berating officers.

Mosley is charged with disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace, both misdemeanors.

The couple’s attorneys, Charles Longstreet and Thomas Fitzpatrick, said they plan to sue the police department and the hotel.
