DETROIT (AP) - The president of Detroit’s police union has been suspended without pay after he was charged in a suburban community with reckless driving and malicious destruction of a building.

Detroit police Chief James Craig says Friday that Mark Diaz also is under investigation by the department’s internal affairs unit and the state police.

The Detroit News reports (https://detne.ws/2liF1rO ) that Diaz was named Friday in a complaint by the Oakland County prosecutor’s office related to a Dec. 20 incident at a school in Holly, northwest of Detroit.

Diaz told the newspaper that he was “very surprised” by the charges, but he will “cooperate with the justice system.”
