Prosecutor considering whether to charge Mich. treasurer Andy Dillon with assaulting ex-wife

REDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A spokeswoman says the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office is considering whether to charge state Treasurer Andy Dillon with assaulting his ex-wife.

Office spokeswoman Maria Miller told The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press on Friday that a warrant request was submitted by Redford Township police.

Carol Dillon accuses her ex-husband of "assaultive behavior" while drunk at her township home on July 13. Andy Dillon's attorney, James Harrington III, says the complaint is "without merit."

Dillon accused her of stealing his phone from a car the same day. She denies it was theft. Carol Dillon says she returned the phone to state troopers who found her at the Redford police department.

Both sought personal protection orders against the other, and a judge issued a one-year mutual restraining order.
