Police: No charges over slur aimed at state official's wife

BRADDOCK, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State Police say they won't charge a woman who was recorded directing a racial slur against the wife of Pennsylvania's lieutenant governor at a grocery store. In a release issued Thursday, police said investigators concluded the woman’s actions were a violation of state criminal law, but Gisele Fetterman and Lt. Gov. John Fetterman don't wish to see her prosecuted. The woman followed as Fetterman retreated to her vehicle in the store parking lot, and was seen using a slur during a two-second clip that Fetterman posted to social media. Gisele Fetterman says she'd prefer that the woman get assistance from social service agencies and other help.
