Police chief charged with health care fraud
The mayor of a city in the area is defending his public safety chief, who’s been charged with health care fraud.
Greenville Public Safety Director Mark Reiss is accused of keeping his ex-wife on his health insurance after their divorce in 2014.
Mayor John Hoppough said he believes Reiss wouldn't "do anything wrong on purpose."
The mayor said Reiss has been a "great man to work with."
Reiss is on vacation, but he told Greenville officials he plans to plead not guilty.
He's been in charge of the city's joint police-and-fire department since 2013.
Reiss formerly worked as an officer in Grand Haven.
