DETROIT (AP) - Wayne County Sheriff Benny Napoleon is being asked to pay $18,000 for using a county car while campaigning for Detroit mayor last year.

TV station WDIV (https://bit.ly/1DJNSGr) says the county’s auditor general sent a letter seeking the money after a ruling by the county’s Ethics Commission.

Napoleon campaigned for Detroit mayor for months last year, first for the summer primary election and then the fall election, which was won by Mike Duggan.

His attorney, Mark Brewer, says Napoleon is being unfairly singled out. He plans to ask the Michigan attorney general for an opinion on the issue.
