Macomb County Prosecutor will not authorize charges against Amazon driver arrested by Warren officer
MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. The Macomb County Prosecutors Office has denied charges in connection with an altercation between a Warren police officer, who is White, and an Amazon driver, who is Black. Cellphone video of the Amazon driver being violently arrested by police as he was making a delivery went viral on social media. The driver was charged with resisting and obstructing a police officer, failure to obey a lawful command and failure to produce a drivers license. We have an obligation not only to pursue appropriate criminal charges when necessary, but also employ discretion to not authorize criminal charges as certain circumstances demand, prosecutor Jean Cloud said. The prosecutors office was presented with the warrant requesting charges on Wednesday.
