Grand Traverse County commissioner to be investigated by State Attorney General



Ron Clous pulled out a gun while a constituent spoke at a virtual meeting in January. A criminal complaint was filed against him that the A.G.’s office is now looking into. A rep only said the investigation is open, and didn’t say what Clous could be charged with or when they’ll make a decision.

Clous has ignored calls to step down, and the county board hasn’t punished him.

Betsy Coffia is a democrat on the commission.

She says this could have been resolved weeks ago with an apology from Clous and the board chair.

“I think they underestimate how far that might go for our community, so there’s still time to apologize.”

Clous couldn’t be reached for comment.
