- Ralph Godbee accused of placing ‘lover’ under surveillance after seeing Twitter photos of her with gun in her mouth
- She claims Godbee, who is married but reported to have filed for divorce, is a ‘sex addict’
- Second time in two years a Detroit police chief has been embroiled in a scandal
- Godbee’s predecessor, Warren Evans, was fired in 2010 partly because of a relationship with a female officer
Detroit’s top law enforcement officer has been suspended amid allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a subordinate.
Chief Ralph Godbee’s affair with Angelica Robinson, an internal affairs officer, emerged after she posted a photo with her service weapon in her mouth on Twitter, after learning Godbee was at a police conference with another woman.
Godbee had other officers locate the 37-year-old and put her under surveillance after seeing her photo.
Her attorney, David Robinson has confirmed that there was a relationship between his client and Chief Godbee, who is married but filed for divorce in August, according to myFoxDetroit.com.
She now refers to herself as Godbee’s former lover, and claims he is a ‘sex addict,’ the news website reports.
‘There was a sexual relationship between my client and Godbee,’ Robinson told The Associated Press. ‘She was trying to end the relationship, and Godbee didn’t want to let it go.’
With regards the images his client posted on Twitter, Robinson added; ‘Obviously, it raised the implication of suicide.’
