Skip to comments.Alleged LAPD Beating Victim The Gruesome Photo (banking Executive-Former Head of Fox TV)
Posted on 08/27/2012 5:28:19 AM PDT by RummyChick
There's no doubt ... Brian Mulligan -- an international banking honcho -- was beaten to a pulp by the LAPD -- based on photos obtained by TMZ.
Mulligan -- the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media for Deutsche Bank -- is unrecognizable in the pics -- with severe nasal fractures and lacerations, a concussion, a fractured right scapula, and numerous contusions and abrasions.
Although the LAPD claims officers beat and arrested Mulligan after he became violent and threatening ... prosecutors declined to file charges. Our sources say prosecutors believe the photos are "clear evidence of excessive force." Indeed, Mulligan already filed a $50 million claim against the City of L.A.
TMZ first reported, Mulligan claims two LAPD cops beat him senseless after wrongfully detaining him ... claiming he resembled a person suspected of attempted car theft. Mulligan claims the officers took him to a hotel against his will and when he tried to leave officers brutally attacked him.
Mulligan's lawyers, J. Michael Flanagan and Valerie Wass, tell TMZ cops at the scene conceded Mulligan was NOT under the influence of drugs and they described him as calm, lucid, and cooperative." They tell TMZ, "Mulligan had committed no violations of law and was not arrested. No drugs were found during a search of his person or his vehicle, and the officers found absolutely no evidence of drug use by Mulligan."
Flanagan and Wass say cops also engaged in a cover up, telling us, "The two officers who inflicted the injuries on Mulligan subsequently concocted a police report in an attempt to justify their use of excessive and deadly force and to obtain a filing of criminal charges against Mulligan."
LAPD claims they took Brian Mulligan to a motel because he was sleepy. He waited several hours ..felt like his life was in danger..and tried to get out of the room.
Oh, and he had a lot of money in the trunk of his car.
Sounds like they tried to shake him down.
KGB. sounds like set up or shake down.
I hope he wins that lawsuit.
This BS being done under color of law, with a badge, really needs to end.
“they took Brian Mulligan to a motel”
False imprisonment and attempt to cover up police brutality.
He must’a had the wrong bumper sticker on his car.....
The Mafia called that a ride...
one more piece of information that might or might not be relevant is that this happened near a medical marijuana dispensary.
The whole story is weird.
Anyone think this will get as much media coverage as Rodney King?
I hope it gets to court.
Sounds like the cops wanted to make some side-income via kidnapping. If it was you or me instead of an executive with access to serious lawyers and friends back at Fox, it might even have worked.
Take a look at the comments by the BOlsheviki haters at the Source you linked. They’re unbelievable.
Well, his tenure at Fox didn’t go over well. He wasn’t tough enough for the cut throat business. He was there for less than a year.
He had an interesting history in the media business. He was involved in the Marvin Davis attempt to take over the Vivendi deal against Barry Diller
So the story by the police goes that they had to use excessive force because Mulligan was high on Bath Salts
We're told Mulligan says the cops told him to stay in the room until they returned. He claims he waited several hours, but the cops never came back. He says he felt he was being set up to be robbed or killed, so he made a run for it. As he ran out, he says cops were right there and began beating him mercilessly.
A few hours later, cops say they got ANOTHER call from someone who said a man matching Mulligan's description was in traffic, trying to open people's car doors. When cops approached him, they say Mulligan "took a fighting stance" and charged the officers, so they took him down.
I like the cops version - he looked tired so we took him to a motel. Then we got a call that the same guy we determined wasn't robbing cars before, really was the guy. He hopped out of the motel that we had taken him to (somehow he got back in there after being noticed again robbing cars in the interim) and was about to beat us senseless with his bare hands, so we had to render his face into ground round.
The city needs to look deep within a mirror to figure out the truth here. A thug with a badge is a betrayal, like a molester posing as a priest or teacher.
This is not the first report on this by TMZ.
The police story doesn’t make sense.
They claim he fit the description of someone who was committing theft. That is why they apprehended him. They also claim they took him to a motel because he was sleepy.
Now, they are going to claim he was high on bath salts.
The clue here is that he has NOT been prosecuted.
Cops are trying to cover their butts.
disturbing people trying to get away from labd?????
what was the excuse for beating him almost to death?
Yeah, because that's what cops do.
I think there might be some covering up on both sides. Mulligan has a reputation he has to maintain.
leave it to the UK papers to give us pictures of the seedy motel
does it make sense that a high level highly paid Executive with contacts in the Entertainment World would do bath salts?
But bath salts????
It is really, really, really hard to break the scapula. Poor guy.
The shoulder blade (scapula) is rarely broken (broken bones are also called fractures). Shoulder blades breaks comprise less than 1% of all fractures.
Scapular fractures occur more often in young men aged 25-45 years because of the activities and trauma they encounter. These occur with athletic activities, motor vehicle accidents, and other forms of blunt trauma.
One of the posters on TMZ said that it won’t heal. Don’t know anything about that.
well hold on to your socks because the big scandal is about to erupt over Prince Harry. His Inner circle have taken down their social media accounts. Steve Wynn is starting to cover his butt about security.
Woman claims she is willing to take a lie detector test.
“”Something pretty gigantic” is involved, the source said, something more serious than “strip billiards” at one of Wynn’s properties.”
I am wondering if we are about to hear of a rape claim. It’s gotta be rape or orgy claims.
Brian Mulligan will be yesterdays news for the LAPD because everyone will be talking about Prince Harry.
That’s right. Add to the recap:
He was not on drugs or drunk. He had no booze or drugs in his system. He was not observed doing anything wrong. The police’s story doesn’t make sense — he looked like someone who was wanted for questioning for something else so they take him to a motel room because he looks tired.
I think you have a couple police officers who aren’t just losing their jobs — they are going to jail.
Essentially, the broken scapula shows he was curled up on the ground protecting his head while the beat his scapula with their nightsticks.... Or something like that.
No, the beatee is white...of course not.
These two cops are criminals in LEO clothing. They were going to shake him down, or just beat him for some unknown reason....were they white or black?
The DA is not prosecuting because legal evidence would have to be submitted, and the DA knows there is no case, period!
They are trying to cover this up under dubious false claims and reports that have no weight in a court of law.
I hope he sues their ass off. I hope these two LEOs go to ABJ (a$$-banging-jail).
Any bets on the recording of that call getting lost?
Officer’s took him to a motel? What’s wrong with that picture? How about just taking him to the police station for booking? I smell a major payday coming for this guy.
The bath salt claim has to be to cover the excessive force.
I saw a video taken of a guy high on something as the police were trying to take him down. It was crazy. Yes, you need a lot of force. They used a taser and the guy just kept on trying to get away and did manage to get away for a bit.
But some middle age white executive dude not armed or high on bath salts would not need to have his scapula broken. They should have been able to arrest the guy without that kind of force.
Don’t they carry tasers???
He might have been in the area to buy weed. You just don’t carry $5000 of cash your trunk in that neighborhood . That’s what credit cards are for ...
LOL I have a bridge I’ll sell you.
Understood. However, the reason you are anywhere, the mere fact you are ‘there’ isn’t sole justification if it is a public place, and there are no other outward (legal) signs there is the potential of a crime being or having been committed.
Irrespective all that, there is the most disturbing fact the LEOs put this man in a motel room because he was sleepy....or whatever BS reason they’ve had time to come up with.
They beat this man to get lots of money, or they were racists (although maybe not in Holder’s eyes if they ARE black), or THEY were doped up on something or just crooks... no one can convince a sane person there was anything legitimate about this story and the LEO’s excuses - that is why this man was and is nowhere being prosecuted for anything....
They took him to a motel because he was sleepy? To a Motel Nite Stix? “We’ll put your lights out for you”? Free facial massage included when you sleep on our Beauty Arrest bunk?
Where is the source for this information? The only other link I can see for this besides the TMZ link is a story on Bloomberg where the victim’s lawyer is patently denying “bath salts.” No mention of fast food, behavior or confessions by the victim....
it’s on the internet in various stories. CBS got a copy of the police report.
Okay....was this fast-food thing related to the later reports the LEOs were looking for a perp that looked like him? Somehow, I’m inclined to believe these two concocted the connection. It is the way they work.
Is there no Free Press in LA ?
......this happened near a medical marijuana dispensary.
I saw that when this story broke ,, I understand you could say that about huge portions of L.A. ,, I see that as irrelevant unless the cops thought he was the banker or carrying cash for a dispensary. “we took him to a hotel and babysat him to make sure he was OK” just doesn’t work as a viable alibi.
