LOS ANGELES (AP) – A bank executive who says he was beaten by a pair of Los Angeles police officers during a bizarre incident sought help from police in a neighboring city two days earlier because he had taken bath salts.
Glendale police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said Monday that Deutsche Bank Vice Chairman Brian Mulligan went to police headquarters in May to get advice on how to deal with the effects of taking bath salts.
An audio recording of the encounter was released Monday by the Los Angeles Police Protective League. Mulligan says on the tape he snorted “white lightning,” a type of bath salts, at least 20 times.
Mulligan has filed a $50 million claim against the city of Los Angeles. His attorney Skip Miller says the release of the tape is mudslinging.
