St. Ignace police chief won't face charges for misconduct


ST. IGNACE, MI--   No charges will be filed against the St. Ignace chief of police after someone lodged a complaint with the Michigan State Police.

The May complaint against Chief Tony Brown alleged he had potentially committed a crime while on duty by manipulating a complaint that negatively affected the prosecution of a case.

State Police from the St. Ignace Post assigned two detectives to investigate. They collected and analyzed computer evidence and submitted a report to the Mackinac County Prosecutor in June.

The prosecutor referred the case to the Michigan Attorney General’s Office, which reviewed it and determined there was insufficient evidence to support criminal charges.
