Wadsworth Ward 3 City Councilman Lee Potts was arraigned Wednesday in Wadsworth Municipal Court on a misdemeanor trespassing charge dating back to a February incident, the Medina Gazette reports.
Wadsworth Police Chief Randall Reinke said police received a complaint regarding Potts, 31, and 23-year-old Alyssa Biedron of Brunswick on Feb. 7, according to the paper.
“They went to a residence on Chestnut Street, they had permission to be there to pick an item up,” Reinke said. “While they were there, they allegedly entered the residence without permission.”
Reinke said a tenant at the home filed the complaint.
Biedron was also charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct with persistence.
Potts and Biedron were notified that warrants had been issued for them on March 8, and both individuals turned themselves in later that day, Reinke said. Both were booked and released on their own recognizance with a summons to appear in court, the Gazette reported.
The case was sent to a special prosecutor, Matt Laniera of Medina, because Wadsworth prosecutors recused themselves.
