Robinson is now alleging she had an affair with Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee.  Mayor Dave Bing suspended Godbee for 30 days while an investigation is conducted.

Robinson has not filed a lawsuit in that case yet.

Wednesday afternoon, FOX 2's Alexis Wiley spoke with another female officer that told her she also had a sexual relationship with Godbee while he has been chief.  She declined to go on camera at this time.

FOX 2 also spoke with a police department spokesperson who said there is no policy regarding dating.
