The federal prosecutor who helped put former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick in prison, and who is prosecuting corruption in Macomb County, is the target of a police investigation himself after being charged last month with beating up his 78-year-old mother, who was living with him.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Bullotta was arraigned April 12 in 52-3 District Court in Rochester Hills on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge stemming from the alleged April 9 incident in his Oakland Township home, according to the district court’s website.
An Oakland County Sheriff’s report obtained by The Detroit News shows family members gave police different reasons about what sparked the argument that allegedly escalated into violence.
Bullotta’s sister told sheriff’s deputies it started over a dispute about their dogs. But Bullotta told investigators his mother was upset with him because he dates a black woman.
