ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s attorney general has ordered an investigation of police in suburban Detroit who questioned a black man when a woman claimed he was staring at her. Dana Nessel said Friday that her civil rights division will review the conduct of Royal Oak police following the Tuesday incident. The police department has apologized, saying the encounter with 20-year-old Devin Myers should have been “very short” and the officer “had no legal right” to demand his identification.
