A woman claims the head of the Omaha firefighters union assaulted her in November.
The Omaha World-Herald reports the woman, identified by police as a 36-year-old black woman, alleges 49-year-old Steve LeClair approached her several times at a bar, using lewd language, shoving her into the bar, and whispering “white power” into her ear.
LeClair’s attorney tells the newspaper LeClair has a record of service to the city and is ready to defend himself against the allegation.
A city prosecutor says police continue to investigate the allegation.
The newspaper did not identify the woman.
