Detroit EM axes council head, union pacts, agency

DETROIT (AP) ó Detroit's emergency manager took a series of decisive steps Thursday, telling unions he's canceling their contracts, ousting City Council President Charles Pugh for skipping work and outsourcing the failing public lighting department.


Contracts for the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees Council 25 and the Detroit Police Lieutenants & Sergeants Association will end when they expire in the coming weeks, said Bill Nowling, spokesman for state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr.


Orr also signed an order Thursday stripping the pay and authority from City Council President Charles Pugh, who has been absent from City Hall for undisclosed reasons. He's also been a no-show at recent council meetings and failed to acknowledge by a 5 p.m. Wednesday deadline that he would be returning to work.


Pugh also is the subject of a complaint the Detroit Public Schools received from the mother of a recent graduate who says the councilman had improper contacts with her teenage son.

We know that Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been arrested. We donít know why.

Massachusetts State Police have issued a statement via Twitter (where else?) indicating that they wonít be disclosing the charge against Hernandez until he appears in court.

Itís unclear when he will appear in court. It presumably will happen at some point today. But heíll need to be processed first, including mugshots and fingerprints and whatever else they do when someone is arrested.
