The former head of the Detroit Police Department’s internal affairs division said Tuesday that he was fired because he investigated charges of criminal behavior by Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his relatives and members of his security detail.
Gary Brown said he was investigating reports of a drunken-driving accident, falsified overtime records and a possible cover-up of the incidents, all involving members of the mayor’s team of bodyguards, when he was fired from his job as deputy police chief Friday. Brown said he was looking into an incident at the Manoogian Mansion involving Kilpatrick, his family, nude entertainment and an assault that also was allegedly concealed from police.
There have been widely circulated rumors since September about the alleged party. Neither The Detroit News nor other media outlets could verify any part of the rumor through interviews or documents.
“The mythical Manoogian party is already one of the most investigated rumors to hit this city in a long time,” Kilpatrick said. “You have found nothing.”
The rumor I heard was that Mayor Archer had a blowout party at the Manoogian Mansion (the Mayor’s mansion) including alcohol, strippers and drugs. An allegedly fun time to be sure, that is until Mrs. Archer showed up. Yadda yadda yadda and Mrs. Archer supposedly wound up being treated for injuries. Apparently this story has been circulating around the local media for a while, but they haven’t been able to get confirmations on anything so we never heard about it.
