One local and two state employees are facing criminal charges stemming from the water crisis that continues to plague the Midwestern U-S city of Flint, Michigan. The three were charged Wednesday with evidence tampering and several other felonies and misdemeanors. Other charges may be filed as the investigation by the Michigan attorney general's office continues.
