Former DPD Chief Warren Evans blasts Bing, Godbee in Facebook post

(WJBK) -

Warren Evans used Facebook to critique Detroit Mayor Dave Bing's decision to suspend Police Chief Ralph Godbee amidst a sex scandal that has rocked city hall.

Evans, Godbee's predecessor, posted on his page:

Maybe someone can help me with the Mayors mathematical equation and thought process:
Single man openly dates single woman = forced resignation
Married man has affair with single woman=promotion to Chief
Married man has another affair with married woman=30 day suspension.
Married man has no clue about fighting crime or fiscal management
Single man reduces crime significantly and saves money


Evans was fired by Bing in 2010 partly because he was romantically involved with a female officer.

"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," the mayor said in a statement Tuesday that did not specify the allegations.

Evans, a former Wayne County sheriff, was appointed chief by Bing in 2009 and fired after he raised the mayor's ire by taking part in a promotional video for a cable police reality show. Bing later said he also fired Evans because the chief was romantically involved with Lt. Monique Patterson.

Godbee, too, had a romantic relationship with Patterson before she began dating Evans and when she was Godbee's subordinate.

The prior relationship between Godbee and Patterson was disclosed publicly after Godbee was named interim chief, and Bing issued a strongly worded statement after its disclosure saying he wasn't considering firing Godbee for having an affair with a subordinate.

Godbee is now under fire after a female officer admitted this week to having an affair with him. Angelica Robinson tells FOX 2's Charlie LeDuff that she is Godbee's former lover.

Evans declined to comment further to FOX 2.
