Pittsfield City Councilman
PITTSFIELD - A Pittsfield city councilman has been formally charged after allegedly tipping off drug dealers before a police raid.
NewsChannel 13's media partners at the Berkshire Eagle report Paul Capitanio has been indicted by a Grand Jury. He was arrested in August.
At that time, Massachusetts State Police said Capitanio was an Oxycodone addict.
Last year, Capitanio talked emotionally during an interview with NewsChannel 13 about how he lost his own son to drug abuse.
He denies the charges against him.
