DETROIT (KDKA) — Allegheny County Controller Chelsa Wagner has been ordered to stand trial in the fall in Detroit.

Wagner was back in a Michigan courtroom Tuesday morning for another hearing on charges related to her arrest at a hotel while on a trip there earlier this year.

Wagner was arrested after she confronted officers who were trying to remove her husband from a hotel after he lost his key card.


At the pre-trial motions hearing, lawyers for Wagner argued no laws were broken and the charges should be dismissed.

“We know that the officers … their job is to enforce Michigan law,” said Charles Longstreet, Wagner’s attorney. “There was no Michigan law being enforced at the time they were taking Mr. Mosley out of the hotel. So what was their function?”

The prosecution vigorously objected.

“The standard clearly is, did the court abuse their digression? No, they didn’t,” said Erika Tusar, the Wayne County assistant prosecutor. “Ms. Wagner clearly disobeyed the direction of the officers, she intervened in this, and excuses and it omits all of what Mr. Mosley was doing from the time police encountered him.”

In the end, the motion was dismissed by the judge.

The trial has been set for Nov. 12, 2019.

The defense said it would take two weeks to try the case, but the judge was not receptive, saying she would give them a week. She also warned both sides not to engage in theatrics.
