Police report: Plainfield official solicited hooker

Police reports show Plainfield's public safety director, who was suspended last month, tried to hire a prostitute while on duty.

The police report says Hellwig made arrangements on his city computer for an erotic massage. The e-mail arrangements and directions to an alleged prostitute's house were found in a police vehicle Hellwig used to drive to North Jersey.

The city explained the three-day suspension of Martin Hellwig by saying he misused city equipment.
