Former news reporter and Detroit City Council president Charles Pugh arrested in Harlem on child molestation charges....
According to the Detroit Free Press, the charges are the culmination of a lengthy sex scandal between Pugh and a child between the ages of 13 to 15.
Reports indicate the allegations go back to 2003 while Pugh was working on the air.
The former Detroit City Council president was also sued by a 17-year-old in an unrelated case stemming from 2012.
The teen collected $250,000 after lawyers for the teen claimed Pugh was allowed to have incredible access to boys at Douglass Academy without proper protection by the school.
The Detroit School District ended up settling their portion of the case for $350,000.
Pugh did not respond to PIX 11 News inquiries when he was walked out to a waiting vehicle Thursday morning at the Fifth Precinct shortly before 8:00 a.m.
The 44-year-old Pugh is expected to be extradited to Detroit in the near future.
