DETROIT (WKZO) -- Detroit Mayor Dave Bing announced this morning the retirement of police chief Ralph Godbee effective immediately.
Godbee's exit puts an end to a sex scandal that has plagued the department for the past week. Bing said that he met with the chief, who had been placed on suspension for 30 days on Sunday and Godbee told the mayor of his plan.
Godbee was accused of having a sexual relationship with Internal Affairs Officer Angelica Robinson. She came forward about their relationship after Godbee took another woman with him to a police chief's conference in San Diego last week.
