(WXYZ) — A 78-year-old woman alleges that ousted Macomb County Clerk Karen Spranger stole money from her and assaulted her, according to Warren Police.
Spranger lost her job as clerk last year when a judge found she lied about where she lives.
Police said the woman filed a police report, but decided not to cooperate and said she didn't want to proceed with any investigation.
However, Warren Police are submitting a warrant request to the prosecutor's office Thursday morning.
Police are seeking charges against Spranger for:
- Embezzlement, vulnerable adult (felony) between $1,000 and $20,000
- Domestic violence (misdemeanor)
It will be up to the prosecutor to decide if there's enough to move forward with charges.
