State Trooper from Calumet Post Arrested

A Michigan State Police trooper assigned to the Calumet Post finds himself on the wrong side of the law.

Police say 41-year-old Gregory Filpus of Pelkie was arrested last Wednesday by the Houghton County Sheriff’s Department on two separate misdemeanor warrants.

Filpus is charged with 4th-degree child abuse and domestic violence.

He joined the Michigan State Police in 1993, and he’s currently suspended, with pay, pending the outcome of the charges.

Filpus is free on personal recognizance.

His pre-trial is set for November 30th.
