Four Highland Park police officers face charges including accepting bribes and distributing sham cocaine.
Charges against Anthony Bynum, 29; Price Montgomery, 38; Shawn Williams, 33, and Craig Clayton, 55, were announced this morning in the U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit. Williams is from Detroit; the others are from Highland Park, according to officials.
Byrum's mother asked for prayers for her son following his initial appearance in federal court in Detroit today.
“My son is a good boy. He is a good officer,” said Annie Bynum, 65, of Detroit. “I can’t even believe this is happening.”
Anthony Bynum is accused, among other allegations, of agreeing in principal to kill someone for $20,000.
