DETROIT -

Madison Heights police on Monday will begin their investigation into a criminal complaint that has been filed against Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh over allegations he had an inappropriate relationship with a teenage boy.

The complaint alleges that Pugh had inappropriate contact with a student while in the city of Madison Heights

The complaint was filed Saturday by a Detroit mother who says Pugh bought her 17-year-old son clothes, gave him cash, took him off campus and bought him a cellphone, which has alleged text messages from Pugh on it.

The alleged behavior happened between May 29-31 while Pugh was a mentor at Detroit Public Schools' Douglass Academy.

Sources told Local 4 Madison Heights is where Pugh may have taken the teen on a shopping trip.

Pugh seemingly abandoned his role on City Council last month, not showing up to meetings, answering calls and deleting his social media profiles.

Because of his absence, Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr has stripped him of his power and pay.

On Saturday, Local 4 has confirmed Pugh had a room at The Grand Hyatt Hotel while in Seattle.

STILL TAKING PLACE. SAUNTEEL JENKINS WILL BE A GREAT CITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT. Hank: AND TODD, HERE'S WHAT'S INTERESTING, PUGH AND THIS YOUNG MAN APPARENTLY BOTH LIVE IN THE CITY OF DETROIT, BUT A COMPLAINT WAS FILED WITH MADISON HEIGHTS P.D., WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU? THERE'S SOMETHING OBVIOUSLY THAT TOOK PLACE IN MADISON HEIGHTS THAT WAS MORE LIKE A PHYSICAL CONTACT THAN JUST A TEXT MESSAGE AND SOMETHING HAPPENING IN DETROIT. THE JURISDICTION OR THE VENUE FOR WHERE THE INCIDENT ALLEGED WAS PROBABLY IN MADISON HEIGHTS. THAT'S REALISTIC AS IT RELATES TO MADISON HEIGHTS. Hank: SO WHAT HAPPENS NOW? THEY SAY DETECTIVES WILL START REVIEWING THIS. BUT IN YOUR EXPERIENCE, IF THAT POLICE REPORT IS FILED, THAT LEADS YOU TO BELIEVE THAT OBVIOUSLY THIS IS NO LONGER A CIVIL MATTER, WE'RE TALKING ABOUT AN ALLEGATION OF CRIMINAL WRONGDOING. WELL, SOMEONE CAN POINT THE ACCUSE TORE FINGER. THE POLICE OFFICER HAS GOT THE REPORT AND HE'LL REVIEW IT AND IT WILL BE DIFFICULT FOR HIM TO GATHER EVIDENCE IF MR. PUGH IS NOT TALKING. HE'S NOT GONNA GET A STATEMENT FROM MR. PUGH. THE TEXT MESSAGES, THEY'D HAVE TO BE PRETTY EXPLICIT AND SHOW SOME SORT OF SOLICITATION. SO THE POLICE OFFICER, THEY'RE GONNA DO THEIR INVESTIGATION. IF I WAS MR. PUGH, I WOULD HIGHER AN ATTORNEY AND GET A PRIVATE POLYGRAPH DONE AND EXPOSE IT TO THE WORLD IF I PASSED IT AND COOPERATE TO THE BEST OF YOUR ABILITY, BUT MAKING SURE THAT I PROTECTED ALL MY CLIENT'S RIGHTS. Hank: BECAUSE AT SOME POINT, DETECTIVES WILL WANT TO TALK TO HIM AND GET HIS SIDE OF THE STORY. TODD, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, WE APPRECIATE THE INFORMATION AND
