Detroit, MI

Detroit, MI: (Sep-11-07) Former Deputy Police Chief Gary Brown and former mayoral bodyguard Harold Nelthrope brought a whistleblower lawsuit against Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, exposing alleged misdeeds by the mayor's staff and extramarital affairs by the mayor himself. Brown claimed he was fired in 2003 because he was looking into allegations of drunken driving accidents, falsified overtime records and a possible cover up of incidents involving members of the security unit. He said he was investigating claims from two former mayoral bodyguards that the mayor used his bodyguards to facilitate and cover up extramarital affairs.

In a settlement reached, a jury ruled in favor of the two former Detroit police officers, awarding them $6.5 million in the whistleblower lawsuit. Kilpatrick stated that he was shocked by the jury's decision, and that he did not admit to any liability or wrongdoing. [USA TODAY: MAYOR WHISTLEBLOWER]
