Brian Mulligan Photo: Bank Exec Sues for LAPD Brutality
Brian Mulligan Accuses LAPD of Beating Him Up
When the LAPD detained Brian Mulligan, they apparently didn't know that he was a Deutsche Bank executive.
According to Mulligan, he was mistaken for a suspected car thief by the police, who then detained him in a motel room. After a few hours, Mulligan tried to get away, and that's when he says he was beaten up. The photo of Brian Mulligan's face is pretty horrific.
Brian Mulligan has accused the LAPD of police brutality, and is suing the City of Los Angeles for $50 million. The LAPD protests its innocence, but hasn't charged Mulligan with any sort of crime.
The cops claim that Mulligan was high when they stopped him, and that he was carrying a large amount of cash in his car. They say they took Mulligan to a hotel room at his request, and left him there, only to later find him trying to jump into moving cars on the street.
(LA motorists: if a banker tried to jump into your car on May 14, 2012, now's the time to say something.)
Mulligan's lawyers also deny that their client was high on bath salts.
Brian Mulligan is the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media for Deutsche Bank and former Fox Television chairman.
The LAPD wonders why, since the alleged beating took place in May, Mulligan waited so long to accuse the department of brutality. By the same token, one cannot help but wonder why the decision to charge Brian Mulligan with anything is still "under review".
