IONIA COUNTY, Mich. — John Calley, the brother of Lt. Gov. Brian Calley plead not  guilty following an incident earlier this year.

Calley faces three misdemeanor charges after allegedly dragging a woman while she attempted to re-enter a vehicle at an Ionia County gas station.

The Jan. 28 incident was caught on surveillance video at the Pilot Gas Station, 7205 South State Road in Orange Township.   Calley turned himself into police Jan. 29.

Police reports show that Calley and the woman were friends, but were not in a romantic relationship.  She told investigators in the reports that he would often give her rides and the two of them would use drugs together.  The two of them had known each other since she was 16.

Calley is scheduled for a pretrial hearing July 14, according to the Ionia County District Court.
