Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee Jr. is expected to step down in the wake of an investigation into his involvement in a sex scandal, a councilman has told the Detroit Free Press.

Chief Godbee was cornered by reporters at the airport after he returned from the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) conference in San Diego. He declined to comment on the investigation and said he would talk about the situation at a future time to clear his name.

Detroit Councilman Kwame Kenyatta on Wednesday tipped the chief's hand, saying Godbee would resign and he would support that decision.

1st-I thought anyone trying to commit suicide got put on a 72 hr hold in the pscyh.ward; 2nd-I thought she was saying she was trying to end their relationship, so why would she threaten to kill herself because he went to CA w/another woman- doesn't make sense. 3rd-if Godbee saw the video, I can understand him sending officers to try to find her B-4 she followed thru w/the suicide--IF he thought she would. 4th-Yes he's guilty too, but WHY WOULD THEY APPROVE HER to return to duty with a weapon!? Doesn't make any sense. She needs to lose her job also. The video itself shows her mental status, I sure wouldn't feel safe w/her responding to a crime-in-progress, especially if it's domestic violence. 5th-She should have NO legal claim against the city, just like when men think with the"other" brain below the waste, she got involved w/a married man and taxpayers should NOT HAVE TO keep paying for those who can't keep their legs closed or their pants zipped up!!
