Michigan prosecutors on Tuesday charged four former government officials with criminal conspiracy to violate safety rules in connection with the Flint water crisis, which exposed residents to dangerous levels of lead, local media reported.

Former state-appointed emergency managers Darnell Earley and Gerald Ambrose and former city employees Howard Croft, a public works superintendent, and Daugherty Johnson, a utilities manager, were the latest to be charged in the case, the Detroit Free Press reported, citing Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette.

Schuette, who filed the charges in the 67th District Court in Flint, said the defendants conspired to operate the city's water treatment plant when it was not safe to do so, the newspaper reported.
