WARREN/EASTPOINTE — Warren City Councilman Eddie Kabacinski will face misdemeanor charges for allegedly handcuffing a woman who put "Black Lives Matter" stickers on a Trump-Pence sign at a rally in Eastpointe on Oct. 14.

A source at the Macomb County Prosecutor's Office confirmed that Kabacinski, 47, will be charged with impersonating a public officer, a one-year misdemeanor, and assault and battery, a 93-day misdemeanor. The source said a decision on charges came Tuesday after police in Eastpointe reportedly wrapped up their investigation last week and presented their findings to county prosecutors. Further questions were directed to Eastpointe police.

Kabacinski is expected to be arraigned in Eastpointe's 38th District Court at a date and time to be determined. He could not be immediately reached for comment on Wednesday.
