Kwame Kilpatrick is a real gem. The latest? His personal bond has been revoked and his travel restricted after he reportedly threw a detective off a porch in the middle of a racial temper tantrum. The good news (or rather, the bad news): He’s still allowed to attend the Democratic National Convention!

Hat tip – reader D.W.

A 36th District Court judge restricted Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s travel and revoked his personal bond today during a bond hearing, one day after the mayor was accused of assaulting a detective.

The mayor, who was on a personal bond, will now have to pay 10 percent of $75,000 to stay free, Judge Ronald Giles, a 36th district court judge, ordered.

Kilpatrick will be allowed to keep already approved business travel, including attending the Democratic National Convention in Denver. But all personal travel is prohibited. He is also required to participate in drug testing.

Giles addressed Kilpatrick and said, “You are a licensed attorney you are a public official. Everything you do and everything you say is in someway recorded and obviously it’s something you have to think about.”

Prosecutors had asked that Kilpatrick’s personal bond be revoked and he have to “put money up,” said Assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Robert Moran in court today.

Prosecutors believe Kilpatrick violated his bond when he got into a scuffle with a representative of the prosecutor’s office Thursday afternoon. Moran said the mayor exhibited “assaultive conduct.”

Detective Brian White, assigned to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, said Kilpatrick threw him off the porch of a home owned by his sister and the mayor engaged in an obscenity and racially motivated tirade.

White was the officer who booked Kilpatrick. His partner is investigator Joann Kinney.

White testified that the mayor said to his partner: “How can you be a black woman and work on this case?”

In March, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy charged Kilpatrick and his former chief of staff Christine Beatty with conspiracy, obstruction of justice, perjury and official misconduct in a case related to their testimony at a police whistle-blower trial in 2007.

On Thursday afternoon, the mayor also said, according to White, “Leave my f—ing family alone” and “get the f— out of here” and instructed other people at the home “Don’t tell those f—ers anything.”

It’s hard out there for a corruptocrat.
