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.”
Despite his lawyer assertion that Mulligan had not used any drugs…
An executive of one of the largest banks in the world allegedly told the police during an incident in May that he ingested “white lightning,” which police say is a commercial name for bath salts, CBS reports.
Brian Mulligan, the 52-year-old managing director and vice chairman of media and telecommunications for Deutsche Bank, is suing the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for $50 million, claiming he was held captive in a motel room by police officers who then beat him to a pulp.
The police report, obtained exclusively by CBS, states that Mulligan was sweating profusely and walking with an unsteady gait when officers responded to reports that he was trying to break into cars in a Jack-in-the-Box parking lot.
Mulligan told officers he was being chased and didn’t know why. He also stated that he had ingested “white lightning” and marijuana and that he had not slept for four days…
A few hours later, at about 1 a.m., police received another call from the same area, this time about a man running in traffic, Officer Joseph told HuffPost. Mulligan, standing in the street, defied officers’ orders to get out of traffic’s way. Instead, Mulligan bared his teeth, snarled and charged at the officers.
