Detroit officer sprang stepson from jail

The Associated Press

PORT HURON- A Saint Clair County sheriff's lieutenant says a Detroit police officer showed his badge, signed release papers and picked up his stepson from the jail.

The 20-year-old was being held there on a Detroit weapons charge. The officer reportedly has been suspended.

Jail authorities became suspicious two hours after the release Tuesday when Detroit police called and said they would send an officer to pick up the suspect.

Sheriff's Lieutenant Bill Worden says the Detroit officer acted without Detroit police authorization and has been suspended.

Detroit police have re-arrested the 20-year-old suspect.
