Former Head of Detroit FBI To Help Investigate Flint Water Crisis

A former head of the Detroit FBI will play a key role in the investigation of the Flint water crisis.

Andy Arena used to head the Detroit FBI office.

He’s working with former Wayne County prosecutor Todd Flood as they look into what happened in Flint.

Attorney General Bill Schuette says that they will conduct a thorough investigation and let the chips fall where they may.

Schuette says they’re going to figure out who violated what laws in the process that left Flint’s drinking water contaminated with lead.

Since Schuette’s office represents both the people of Michigan and the state government, former Wayne County assistant prosecutor Todd Flood will spearhead the investigation with help from retired FBI head Andy Arena.

He says special counsel will prevent conflicts between him, his team and the state.

Schuette also says his office is reviewing what can be done to prevent Flint residents from being billed for their unusable water.

Federal investigations are also underway.
