Detroit – Mayor Mike Duggan asks the Michigan State Police to investigate threats made by a city businessman claiming retaliation for the city’s refusal to let property targets against him.
Duggan made the remarks Monday after the car dealership Robert Carmack in Detroit, earlier this month, broadcast video clips captured by Duggan’s appearances by a private investigator. The films showed that the mayor visited a residential area in Novi and separately showed a woman arriving there on other occasions.
The mayor claims that the effort is the reproduction of Carmack’s bound to legal affairs that the city has filed against him. The effort to “embarrass me” comes also with a promise from Carmack, Duggan claims, to release more information on Wednesday.
“This is a horrible situation. I have to choose between protecting my interests or protecting my family,” said the mayor to reporters during a Monday conference. “No matter how painful the consequences can be, I will not give these threats.”
Duggan said that Carmack would have promised that the next round of information is expected “cause my wife, Lori, great pain”.
Duggan said he had no idea what other information Carmack could release this week. He said he would leave the police to the police if this would be extorted.
“I feel pressured to modify a case of threat to pamper my family,” said Duggan. “But it’s the state police, and ultimately attorney general who decides whether the law breaks or if it rises to that level.”
Michigan State Police Lt Michael Shaw confirmed that the mayor’s office contacted the state police on Monday and police investigated.
“We look at it as if we were to get another searcher of actual investigations,” said Shaw. “When done, we will pass it to the relevant prosecutor’s office.”
Earlier this month, Duggan and his wife, Lori Maher, released a claim that defended their marriage after Carmack made the recordings public.
Monday’s duggan said that in 2007, a company owned by Carmack proposed to buy a land in the city for $ 250,000. On 20 June 2007, Detroit City Council approved the sale, noted the mayor.
The Legal Department informed him that the sale was complete and that he needed to complete the payment and sign the documents. Duggan said instead, “he left the store, he never paid $ 250,000.”
“The purchase never happened.” The city has never sold the country. It has been in the town’s ownership since then, “Duggan told reporters.
A trial filed by the city claims that Carmack in 2016 took the old draft documents from 2007 and used them to fraudulently imagine that he owned the property. Then he sold the property to an out-of-state investor and received $ 1 million. The city claims in its junk case against Carmack.
“Just a few days later, Carmack’s private investigator began to follow my every move and looked for embarrassing information to use against me, said the mayor.
The mayor said when the city filed the case in June, he was not even aware of it. He claims that it was five months later in early November when Carmack’s acquaintance told the management team that the businessman was “angry with the trial” and “blamed me for it”.
Duggan said that Carmack would use the video “to be ashamed of me.”
Carmack and his lawyer Andrew Paterson could not be reached immediately on Monday for comments.
Earlier this month, Carmack Detroit’s lawyer Lawrence Garcia contacted and demanded that the city resolve its outstanding trial of $ 1 million mayor said Monday.
Carmack also demanded that the city determine a second suit related to countries where his car dealership is located on Michigan Avenue.
“Carmack demanded that the city agree to resolve both dragons to his advantage and not require Carmack to pay a single dollar,” said Duggan, noting Garcia declined.
He then replied, Duggan claims, “Well, you’re doing something better. I’ll make some noise. I’ll release a bomb,” said the mayor.
Carmack also left a trial a week ago in the Wayne County Circuit Court claiming that the city has denied its request for security tape at the Manoogian Mansion, which he said will show that the mayor does not live in the city.
Carmack claims that the city tries to exaggerate him to get the images he seeks under the Freedom of Information Act.
Duggan said about all claims “the most bizarre” is that he has not always lived at the Manoogian Mansion.
According to the lawsuit, Carmack claims that the mayor deliberately sends false information with regard to the hours and days the security cameras record at the Manoogian Mansion, referring to the fact that the private investigator whom he employed allegedly found that Duggan does not live there full time.
The claim claims that the city “intentionally charges an unreasonable amount of money to produce security videos to prevent
In October, a lawyer from the City Legal Department Carmack sent a supplementary response to an August FOIA request for security video at the mansion and information about Mayor’s Executive Protection Staff.
The Legal Entity’s Note of 30-Day Value of Photos from 13 Cameras was reversed, equivalent to approximately 3,200 hours of video and costing $ 20,749. But if Carmack wanted all available video it would be about 6,500 hours and $ 41,609.
The mood does not say why Carmack believes Duggan does not live in the city.
Duggan’s stab boss Alexis Wiley has said that Carmack requested video for 30 days from 13 cameras recording 24 hours a day. He was offered the opportunity to limit his request for freedom of information law to a camera at the entrance n to the manor to lower the cost, she said.
Carmack’s suit claims that he originally searched for all security films from January 2014 to August 2018, but the city said it was recorded only on a DVR in a 30-day video. His lawyers disput the claim and want a judge to decide that the city has the recordings.
The process was filed after Carmack earlier this month showed pictures of Duggan on a sign car outside the city hall that had been caught for a number of months.
The video shows that Duggan runs without his personal protection after working hours to a home in Novi, where he spends between a few minutes and a few hours on several occasions during the summer. A woman seen on the video is present at home at least two different times.
“It speaks for itself,” Carmack said earlier about the film. “This shows the character that I think this mayor is.”
Monday’s dug noted that he first met Carmack soon after being elected mayor and his first experience with him had been positive.
Carmack, Duggan said, participated in a working group to reduce car insurance for Detroiters.
“My first interaction with him was not negative, but he obviously had some bad results about the real estate department,” he said. “I do not know if I’ve ever had a bad conversation with him.”
Carmack is also a key figure in a federal case against Detroit City Councilman Gabe Leland.
The businessman also left his own suit in the spring against Leland, claiming that the councilor tried to extort him.
Carmack had a recording device during talks with Leland, where the councilman claimed that he accepted $ 15,000 and Carmack free car repairs in exchange for Leland’s efforts to delay or prevent the sale of property.
Carmack said that he employed the private investigator to “find out what Mike Duggan does at night” and add that he is trying to get specific people, including Duggan, participate in landfills in his trial.
