Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee Jr. was suspended Tuesday amid accusations that he had an affair with a female police officer -- the second sex scandal to tarnish his tenure since he took the helm in 2010.
An attorney for Detroit Police Officer Angelica Robinson, who works in internal affairs, told the Free Press that his client has been in a relationship with Godbee for "many months."
After the scandal broke Tuesday afternoon, Mayor Dave Bing suspended Godbee. Godbee could not be reached by the Free Press for comment.
"After learning of the allegations regarding Chief Ralph Godbee, I have placed him on a 30-day suspension pending a full and thorough investigation of this matter," Bing said in a statement. "In the interim, Assistant Chief Chester Logan will assume the duties and responsibilities of police chief."
