DETROIT (AP) - A TV station reports former Detroit City Council President Charles Pugh, who dropped out of sight last year, is working as a waiter in New York City.

WXYZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/RmhUN5 ) it interviewed Pugh recently as he left his job.

In December, a police report said sexually explicit text messages and a video were exchanged between Pugh and an 18-year-old who had been part of a school mentoring program that Pugh ran.

Police in the Detroit suburb of Madison Heights had sought a fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct charge against Pugh, but a prosecutor determined there wasn’t enough evidence.

In the interview, Pugh denied asking or forcing the student to do anything.

Pugh resigned in September. He tells WXYZ, which plans to air more of the interview Tuesday night: “I’m not ashamed.”
