KENT COUNTY, Mich. — New video was released Tuesday of Kent County Commissioner Gary Rolls being taken from a meeting in handcuffs.

Rolls faces charges that include criminal sexual conduct, evidence tampering and using a computer to commit a crime. He was arrested Thursday morning when he left the commission chambers towards the end of a meeting.

Allegations first surfaced in late October of 2012 when the woman, then in her late 20s, tried to get a protection order against Rolls.

Then in late 2012 and early 2013, Rolls was in court fighting that protection order from his alleged victim, who claimed that he had been sexually assaulting her and controlling her since she was around 9 years old until she was 23.
