No Charges in Fight for Rep. Conyers’ Wife
DETROIT (AP) _ No charges will be filed against City Councilwoman Monica Conyers, the wife of Democratic Rep. John Conyers, over a bar fight, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Conyers and another woman got into a fight in December during a birthday party for a lawyer. The lawyer’s date, Rebecca Mews, appeared on television with a black eye and claimed Conyers threw the first punch. Conyers claimed Mews shoved her and she defended herself.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy said a majority of witnesses, including the lawyer, supported Conyers’ version of events.
