WARREN — Chong S. Williams, 70, owner of Suzi Kim’s massage parlor in Niles, is in Trumbull County jail after Judge Peter Kontos of Trumbull County Common Pleas Court issued an arrest warrant for her last month.
The warrant was issued because Williams didn’t appear for court hearings regarding the two charges she faces for purportedly trying to bribe an inspector with the Niles Fire Department.
Court officials said they had been advised Williams was in Korea, but she was later arrested in Pittsburgh and brought to the jail Monday.
She is scheduled to have an arraignment hearing before Judge Andrew Logan today, court officials said.
Niles officials said Williams offered the bribe in July in hopes of getting the parlor reopened after the city shut it down for having numerous zoning, fire, income-tax and health-department violations during a surprise inspection June 4, 2013.
