OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The City Prosecutor's Office has decided to move forward with its case against the head of the Firefighers union after reviewing the evidence and circumstances around an incident at a metro bar back in November.

The Prosecutor's Office recommended the Omaha Police Department to cite Firefighters union chief Steve LeClair with assault and battery and disorderly conduct. LeClair is on paid administrative leave, pending an internal investigation.

Assault and Battery and Disorderly Conduct are both misdemeanors under the Omaha municipal code. Each offense is punishable by up to six months in jail, a five hundred dollar fine, or both.

LeClair's scheduled arraignment date is March 8, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. in the Douglas County court. He is expected to be formally charged during the arraignment.
