DETROIT — Michigan State Police troopers are investigating a possible assault by Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick on a deputy accompanying an investigator for the Wayne County prosecutor Thursday at the home of the mayor’s sister, Sheriff Warren Evans said.

Evans said the 6-foot-4 mayor, a former star football player at Florida A&M University, allegedly pushed a sheriff’s deputy and knocked him into the female investigator, who was working for Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. The officers were attempting to serve a subpoena on Bobby Ferguson, a city contractor and close friend of Kilpatrick.

 

 

State police officials were asked to investigate because of “the politically charged nature of the whole thing,” Evans said.

State police met with prosecutors and sheriff’s officials late Thursday to discuss the incident. Under state law, assaulting an officer or “duly authorized person” trying to serve court papers is a felony punishable by up to two years in prison and a $2,000 fine.

  1. I’m from L.A., and it sounds like the cops in Detroit are wimps. Here, wouldn’t of made any difference who he was or how big and tough he was, they would have dragged his tail to jail, via the emergency room if necessary.

  2. It is interesting that we have only heard one side of the story on this one. The process servers in this case went to the home of the mayor’s sister to serve someone who they knew did not live there. Call me paranoid but sounds like harrassament.
