Kwame Kilpatrick’s Bond Revoked
DETROIT — A 36th District Court judge restricted Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s travel and revoked his personal bond today during a bond hearing, one day after the mayor was accused of assaulting a detective.
The mayor, who was on a personal bond that did not require him to pay any money to the court, will now have to pay $7,500 in cash — 10 percent of his $75,000 bond — to stay free, Judge Ronald Giles, a 36th district court judge, ordered.
Mayor Kilpatrick has been out on bail after being arrested for perjury and other felonies related to a police whistle-blower trial last year. This time he’s is in trouble for assaulting a Wayne County detective who was attempting to serve a summons to his friend Bobby Ferguson, a city contractor. The esteemed mayor threw him off a porch, possibly breaking his hip, and also indulged in shouting “obscenities and racial remarks.”
But it’s not all bad news for Kwame:
Kilpatrick will be allowed to keep already approved business travel, including attending the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
Kilpatrick — and moonbat-infested Detroit in general — represent a road we would be wise not to go down.
