I think when you intentionally use a substance like "white lightening", which is known to have bizarre side effects, then have someone lock you in room. This BANKER was treated well by police until he left the hotel room they escorted him to and began again acting out in public. He got a broken nose and hurt shoulder, many people could have harmed by his behavior in traffic. I hope the judge tosses out this law suit as being a waste of time and for being nothing more than a self-serving attempt to distract from his own behavior.

There are times when the police over react, this is just not one of them.

They didn't lock him in his hotel room they simply did as requested and took him to his room. Then left him to sleep it off, I would say that it's possible two things affected this - one a well dressed businessman verses someone who looks like a "street person" and the other, flashing a business card from Deutsche Bank may have something to do his special treatment at first. Once he left the hotel and began obstructing traffic, and fighting with the police, they treated his as they would anyone that resists arrests.

Bath salts? That could explain some of Deutsche Bank gambling (they call it investing or trading, of course) with other people's life.

And, note the untamed greed; Mulligan could buy himself a highly educated anesthesiologist to prepare for him a drug cocktail 'a la carte' with minimal side effects. No, to keep his personal bottom line, he had to take bath salts of all the cheap things he could get, if he only whispered few words to right ears.

I was just thinking the same as what Jelica mentioned.Those bankers responsible for crashing the economy and messing up people's lives are not only criminals but appearently also some sort of junkies..

While I do not necessarily trust the police to tell the truth on most anything, I am somewhat inclined
to believe them that they, the police, dropped Brian Mulligan of into his room per request.

Considering the rest of what transpired in running out in traffic and rushing the officers, Brian Mulligan is
very fortunate that he was not arrested and sent to spend the night in one of LA's lovely drunk tanks and
having Big Bubba as his roommate.

Brian Mulligan should drop his lawsuit and go home and become a persona-non-grata in this country.
Just because Brian is an officer of a very large bank and wealthy, he has no excuse for behaving the way he did.

Ty, Kit.

Sorry, I'm out of green stars. But yes, this guy is a part of the young men and women that are paid too much too soon and think the world belongs to them.

It's the LAPD - he's freakin' Lucky not to have been shot or tasered to death! What if he'd been handed an OCCUPY sign???? The BBC has much better coverage of our "problems" than our own MainStreamMedia, so I figure he was looking for a fight just coming here!;)

Another wanna be globalist??? And with bath salts - the latest drug!!! He got what he deserved.

Why bother with bath salts? Why not just go ahead and take some cyanide? That stuff will just fry your brain, but if that's the way you want to go, don't complain when it causes you problems. Fifty million because he was a jerk? I don't think so.

This is all over the news here...nobody can understand why the police didn't lock him up for his own safety! I doubt that you or I would have been taken to a hotel room and told to be a "good boy/girl" until tomorrow morning!

Stupid, stupid, stupid decision.....almost as stupid as this fool's determination to mess with his brain by using a bizarre concoction of drugs. How many people might he have killed or harmed?

The poiice were stupid to leave this guy alone. Because this drug has very drastic effects on people, he could have come out of his room and killed someone, or himself. Maybe the police made a few bucks off the whole thing.

You have to wonder why a seemingly intelligent person would make such stupid choices. He might not have been in control AFTER he took the combination of drugs, but he was in control BEFORE he did. It was a choice HE made, and HE is responsible for the consequences.

Considering Deutsche Bank's contribution ( $32,000,000,000) to the collateralized debt obligation (CDO) market during the housing credit bubble from 20042008, I'd say Deutsche Bank deserves this creep.

Thanks, Kit!

Anything for a rush I guess. The sad part is (as Kit noted) if it had been someone who was a "no-one" there would not have been questions asked, he simply would have been thrown in jail or worse. Is there something new about this type of "justice"? Unfortunately, there is not...influence/status controls this game.

I hope this man is asked to step down from his high position. These people who are gambling with our lives and the global economy shouldn't be taking "bath salts". Frying his brain out and in charge of a major banking institution is not going hand and hand in my book.

He is depressed, with his monies couldn't he hire a therapist? Take a trip around the world? And if he needed to go the route of drugs with his money couldn't he afford to buy some high quality drugs, not these cheap bath salts. In Florida we had some guy eat the face off another as he was crazed out of his mind from bath salts.

I'm so sick and tired of these elites that think they are above the law or anything else, talk about depressed, how the hell does he think the millions of people around the world feel after he and others like him gambled their futures away? Keep it up buddy, you might end up trying to figure it all out as a minimum wage Wal-Mart employee, then you will really understand what it is to be in a depression.

Depression is a luxury one can't afford when fighting to cover for basic life expenditures. Most people don't have the time to indulge in depression. Empty stomach demands urgent attention, leaving very little time for any other feeling or emotion.

True Jelica, but this man suffers from neither "empty stomach" nor poverty. He may suffer from some form of depression, but he can well afford to seek help. Perhaps now he will.

granted he is an idiot, but the police treatment and beating is just as bad and brutal

Kit B (276)

Resist arrest while standing in the street obstructing traffic and you may just get your whipped, such is life. It is LA and this jerk should be thanking the police for not being much tougher on him.

As I see it, the police made the big mistake of not arresting him the first time, especially when Mr. Mulligan confessed having ingested "white lightning", a known drug. Who knows how Mulligan got the first beating; could had been the police or other people he pissed off. When Mulligan got beaten to a pulp the second time, that might be considered excessive force, but the police can always claim Mulligan was, at that point in time, in a violent and paranoid state, and thus, a danger to the public, the police and ultimately himself.
Ultimately, I think, Mulligan got what he deserved, and the police also got what they deserved, for not following standard protocol.

Bankers are the worst drug users because they are always bored.

Noted and agree that he should've just been arrested in the first place. Oh, to live the life of the rich and powerful--so bored you'll ingest any stupid chemical. Disgusting! So, I guess the Banksters won't be jumping out windows like in the Great will be suicide by overdose due to boredom from all the wealth they stole.

I'll give the L.A. cops my phone, so next time they can call me and I'll lend them all the boots I can possibly gather. Specially the steel toed ones. The financial BRUTALITY that the major world banks have imposed over the World far outweighs any possible "violent" scenario that we're all speculating over a few words on the news. We weren't there to witness the so called violence, or the so called erratic behavior of the man. My analysis? Mr. Executive banker here is depressed, more lonely than the Curiosity Explorer on Mars, and his own greed is eating him up inside. I guess Karma is working faster than we thought on all this scum of the earth. Good, cause we've all been way too patient.
