Brian Mulligan, Deutsche Bank Executive, Says He’ll Sue LAPD Alleging Captive Beating
A Deutsche Bank executive said he will sue the Los Angeles Police Department and the city for $100 million, claiming he was held captive in a motel room by police officers who then beat him to a pulp.
Brian Mulligan, the 52-year-old managing director and vice chairman of media and telecommunications for the German bank, said he was in the LA suburb of Highland Park, near a marijuana dispensary, on May 15 when he was approached by two LAPD officers, Patch reports. His version of what happened is very different from the version that the LAPD told The Huffington Post (see below).
Mulligan said the officers asked why he was there and searched him and his car, where they found thousands of dollars. The officers put Mulligan in their car, drove to a nearby motel and told Mulligan to wait in the room until they returned.
He said he waited several hours, then decided to leave, fearing he was being set up to be robbed or killed, the Daily Mail reports. As he tried to leave, the officers returned and began ruthlessly beating him, he said.
I wonder if one of the officers was foreclosed on by Deutsche Bank…
