The city of Detroit is once again being rocked by yet another text messaging scandal. This one involves the former chief of police and the interim police chief.
As Paula Tutman reports in the video above, both men were involved with the same women, who is a subordinate on the police force.
Judging by dirty laundry being hung out of police headquarters. The street name, Baubein, may need to be changed to address–soap opera alley.
Former Police Chief Warren Evans, dismissed by Mayor Dave Bing in July in part for a romantic relationship Evan Sharpes with a subordinate Lt. Monique Patterson.
Now, thanks to saved text messages, an attorney for Evans says new interim chief Ralph Godbee is not above reproach either because he had a romantic relationship with the same woman when he was deputy and a married deputy chief at that.
“These are messages from the current Chief Godbee to Monique from the period both before and during the time that they had a relationship.”
The text messages were disclosed to the mayor’s office several weeks ago they show not only a romantic relationship but potentially explosive revelations that sex was being used for power and advancement.
