Officials in a suburban Kansas City community have asked the Johnson County District Attorney to remove a City Council member for letting a homeless friend sleep at City Hall.

KSHB reports Prairie Village Councilman David Morrison was the focus of an ethics hearing Monday night.

A formal complaint says Morrison gave his security access code to longtime friend Kelly Malone and lied to police dispatchers twice about why Malone was in the building.

Morrison escorted Malone into City Hall on two nights, and on the third Malone returned there on his own.

Police found Malone hiding in the men's locker room. He told officers he has had drug problems and was recently released from Johnson County Jail.

Morrison apologized Monday and said Malone's life was being threatened.
