MAYOR KWAME KILPATRICK ACCUSED OF ASSAULT, ORDERED TO TEST FOR DRUGS
Detroit's Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick seems to have landed himself in trouble again. Recently investigators alleged that the mayor berated and attacked them as they tried to serve a subpoena to his friend. As a result of the incident a judge ordered the mayor to pay $7,500 and undergo random drug testing. The ruling came after two investigators testified at a hearing that an irate Kilpatrick launched into a profanity-laced tirade and shoved one of them as they tried to serve the subpoena to Detroit businessman Bobby Ferguson. One investigator, a black woman, testified that Kilpatrick tried to shame her for working with a White colleague. State police will investigate the alleged assault, said Wayne County Sheriff Warren Evans.
