A Pemberville Road man has filed a complaint in Wood County Common Pleas Court against Mark Hummer, the Lake Township police chief, and Paul Dobson, county prosecutor, alleging the chief illegally removed the man’s granddaughter from his home.

Prewitt is asking for a jury trial and $300,000 in damages each from Dobson and Hummer.
