Detroit Mayor Imprisoned

(WXYZ) Judge Ronald Giles has ordered Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick into Wayne County Jail for violating his bond.

The mayor violated his bond when he went to Canada July 23 without informing the court, a condition of his bond. The judge also pointed out that the mayor had to make many calls and arrangements for his trip to Canada and could have easily called the court to alert it of the trip.

The 36th District Court judge stressed that he was treating Detroit's mayor in the same way he would "John Sixpack."

The Judge also withdrew the drug screening since the mayor took four tests and all came back clean.
It is not clear how long the mayor will be in jail since the judge revoked his bond.

Judge Giles also revoked the mayor's ability to travel.
How is this jail worthy? I did hear that he assaulted a police officer. So in that case, maybe.
