Hyde Park leader accused of pointing gun at staffers

LOGAN, Utah (AP) — The public works director of a small northern Utah city is back to work following a stint on administrative leave after he was accused of pointing a gun at employees during a staff meeting.

The Herald Journal newspaper in Logan reports that Mike Grunig returned to work Monday for the city of Hyde Park, Utah, after the city council decided to reverse a demotion and pay cut imposed by mayor Sharidean Flint.

The two employees who say Grunig pointed a gun at them say they are quitting rather than working for Grunig.

Grunig didn’t immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press.

Flint says Grunig thought he was playing a joke but the employees were offended. She says the city council isn’t condoning his actions but is worried about legal issues with the punishment.
