Three Officials Charged in Connection to Flint Water Crisis (Video)

The investigation into why Flint’s water stayed contaminated for so long has led Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette to file charges against two officials from the Department of Environmental Quality and one official from the city of Flint.


Michael Glasgow, who served as a supervisor at Flint’s water plant, was charged today with “tampering with evidence” and “willful neglect of office,” reports MLive

“Glasgow previously said he planned to treat Flint’s drinking water with anti-corrosive chemicals after the city began tapping the source, but was overruled by Prysby, who was a district engineer,” Wood TV reported.

Stephen Busch, a district supervisor, and Mike Prysby, a district engineer in the state office, are facing multiple accounts of official misconduct and tampering with evidence as well.
