Detroit is once again embroiled in some straight up, unmitigated Bull Crap on the part of one of its city officials.
This time it’s Chief of Police, Ralph Godbee who was suspended on Tuesday in the middle of a widening sex scandal involving two women, one of whom is a subordinate officer named Angelica Robinson.
Regarding the suspension, Detroit Mayor Dave Bing issued the following statement:
“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,” Detroit Mayor Dave Bing said in a statement on Tuesday. “In the interim, Assistant Chief Chester Logan will assume the duties and responsibilities of police chief.”
It’s the second time during Godbee’s tenure that he has been accused of an affair with a subordinate. When Warren Evans, Godbee’s predecessor, was forced to resign in 2010 in part to a relationship he had with Police Lt. Monique Patterson. It was later revealed that Godbee had also been in a relationship with Patterson but was appointed chief anyway. And, on top of all that Godbee is married, is a father and is an ordained minister.

Meanwhile, Robinson – who is also married with children – went public with the relationship last Saturday night on Twitter after she suspected that Godbee was at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in San Diego with the third woman.
Ok, take a deep breath ’cause it gets even more interesting. Just watch this in depth video report from MyFox Detroit’s Charlie LeDuff who interviews Robinson. And what she has to say is beyond juicy. Trust us.
“He is not the pastor Godbee he portrays to be. He is a sex addict(!) One woman does not satisfy him,” Robinson declared to LeDuff when asked about her involvement with Godbee.
There’s more. Lots more. Watch:
