[Excerpts] Detroit Police Officer Kevin Chambers, 58, was on the boat with his reported mistress when his wife walked in carrying her 38 caliber revolver... We're told Detroit Police investigators are trying to get to the bottom of exactly happened next... Detroit Police say their investigators are trying to determine if the shooting was intentional or an accident... Police had told Action News that the officer's wife was locked up pending a possible arraignment, but we learned late Wednesday afternoon that the officer's wife was not in custody and had not been arrested... they don't have probable cause to think it was anything other than an accident. Police say they are investigating the possibility that officer Chambers tried to grab his wife's gun and it accidentally discharged causing a round to strike his reported mistress...

NOTES.
A 4a.m. accidental shooting at their boat's marina when his wife finds him with another woman? They what - wrestled for the gun? Was he the intended target? Why is he still an officer after his unpaid suspension in 2006 and after the felony warrant for him in 2008 (see below)? How many years did Officer Chambers spend on unpaid suspension besides the time we know about (see below)? How many unreported incidents has he had if these incidents that I could find are so under-reported? And one more time - how is he still an officer?


DETROIT POLICE OFFICER KEVIN CHAMBERS had some kind of [fleeing police, running red lights, speeding at 120mph during chase, being in possession of brass knuckles, failing alcohol test] problems in 2008 - resulting in a felony warrant and at that time Kevin Chambers had been suspended without pay from the Detroit Police Department for at least a year and a half in connection with Chambers having FIRED SHOTS in 2006 - off duty? domestic? at home? We don't know.:

SUSPENSION WITHOUT PAY OF POLICE OFFICER KEVIN CHAMBERS,
BADGE 85, ASSIGNED TO TACTICAL MOBILE
DETROIT BOARD OF POLICE COMMISSIONERS
Minutes of the Regular Detroit Board of Police Commissioners Meeting
Thursday, May 22, 2008

On May 16, 2008, the Internal Affairs Alert Team received notification to respond to the Northwestern District regarding the arrest of Police Officer Kevin Chambers, badge 85, assigned to Tactical Mobile for fleeing and eluding, carrying a concealed weapon and operating while impaired. It should be noted that Officer Chambers has been suspended without pay since November 16, 2006 on Force Investigation Case #06-091 for an off duty incident where he fired shots.

 A review of the Arrest Report prepared by Police Officers Daniel Sitarski, badge 2098, and Stanley Kropik, badge 775, both assigned to the Northwestern District, revealed that at approximately 5:50 A.M., on May 16, 2008, while on routine patrol in the area of Evergreen and Grand River, they observed a person, later identified as Officer Chambers, operating a Harley Davidson Motorcycle at a high rate of speed and disregarding a red light.

The officers attempted to perform a traffic stop, but Officer Chambers sped off exceeding speeds of 120mph. The officers activated their overhead lights and siren and pursued Officer Chambers. Officer Chambers disregarded two more traffic signals and the chased was terminated by Sergeant Harold Ashford; badge S-526, assigned to the Northwestern District. The officers continued on Grand River and observed the motorcycle on the ground at Berg and Grand River and Officer Chambers attempting to pick it up. The officers ordered Officer Chambers to the ground and he was placed in handcuffs. The officers conducted a pat down for offensive weapons and found that Officer Chambers was in possession of brass knuckles. Additionally, the officers detected the odor of intoxicants on Officer Chambers and he was administered Field Sobriety Tests at the scene, which he failed.

 Once at the Northwestern District, Officer Chambers was administered a Breathalyzer Test by Police Officer Darryl Bennett, badge 4320, assigned to the Northwestern District, and the result was a blood alcohol content of.08.

 Officer Chambers was advised of his constitutional rights (Miranda) and he refused to make a statement.

 On this same date, an Investigator’s Report was presented to Wayne County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney (APA) Robert Donaldson naming Officer Chambers as the defendant. APA Donaldson advised Internal Affairs that the warrant would be adjourned to May 19, 2008.

On May 19, 2008, APA Thomas Dawson recommended charging Officer Chamber with one count of Fleeing and Eluding – Third Degree, one count of Possession of a Dangerous Weapon, one count of Operating While Impaired and one (1) count of Reckless Driving. On this same date, Magistrate Millicent Sherman, of the 36th District Court signed felony warrant #08 060420 for the recommended charges.

Based upon the above facts and circumstances, it is recommended that Officer Chambers be charged with, but not limited to, the following violation of the department Rules and Regulations:

CHARGE: CONDUCT UNBECOMING AN OFFICER, CONTRARY TO THE LAW ENFORCEMENT CODE OF ETHICS; THIS BEING IN VIOLATION OF THE DETROIT POLICE DEPARTMENT MANUAL SERIES 100, DIRECTIVE 102.3 – 7.9, CONDUCT UNPROFESSIONAL, COMMAND 1.

Due to the seriousness of the conduct, I am requesting your concurrence with the suspension of Police Officer Kevin Chambers without pay, effective May 22, 2008.

Exec Dir Goss stated there are no arguments on this case because it is a felony.

Unless contravened by this Board the suspension without pay shall stand. There were no contraventions.  [PDF document here]
