The Michigan State Police department is back in the spotlight for bad behavior on the part of some of its officers. This time, the cops aren't accused of racial profiling or killing teens — they're said to have stolen a bicycle and double-ridden it between bars on Mackinac.

Lieutenant Andrew Logunski and Detective Sergeant Derrick Jordan, who is assigned to MSP's Northville post, are both charged with larceny and disorderly conduct for the May 18 incident. Both have pleaded not guilty and, according to an MSP spokeswoman, remain on the job in administrative roles pending the outcome of the case.

"The MSP has a long-standing tradition of demanding the highest possible standards of professional conduct from its enforcement and civilian members," the agency says in a statement. "Regardless of whether a criminal charge results in a conviction, employees can still be subject to administrative penalties resulting from violations of department policy."

The officers work in polygraph testing, the MSP spokeswoman says.

A lawyer for Jordan tells the Detroit News his "client was at another bar when Jordan pulled up to him on a bicycle" and said "‘Hop on and we’ll go to another bar.'” He tells the News his client didn't know there were any "questions of ownership" with the bike.

The bicycle may have belonged to a woman or girl. According to court records obtained by the News, it had a pink seat.
