EASTPOINTE, Mich. (WXYZ) - Greg Brown has been Eastpointe's Public Works Director for 14 years, but late Thursday morning Brown was arrested after police say he tried to interfere with an on-going investigation.
"To obstruct police in their work at any time, especially as a city person, is inexcusable", said Eastpointe City Manager Steve Duchane.
Duchane tells Action News that the investigation began a few months ago and involves possible misappropriation of funds.
We're told when investigators went to Brown's office around 11:00 a.m. Thursday, he refused to allow access to certain records.
Brown faces a misdemeanor charge of Hindering and Obstructing. He was released from jail after posting a $500.
Brown, who has been placed on paid Administrative Leave, is set to appear in court on June 1st.
