Marcus Hook Mayor James D. Schiliro was arraigned Thursday on charges he allegedly had a police officer bring a 20-year-old friend to his home, where he gave the minor alcohol and fired a gun in his house while drunk.
Judge David R. Griffin set bail at $50,000 unsecured for Schiliro, 38, on charges of recklessly endangering another person, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, furnishing alcohol to a minor and official oppression.
“We intend to fight these charges,” said Michael Malloy, Schiliro’s attorney. Schiliro did not comment.
Schiliro has been asked by the borough council to resign, which he has said he would not do.
