Fistfight Breaks Out After Undercover Cops Try To Arrest Other Undercover Cops In Detroit Drug Bust

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

In what is being called a "very embarrassing situations" by Detroit's police chief, a drug arrest went bust. Twice! 

Two separate police precincts, the 11th and 12th, both set up sting operations trying to sell drugs in an attempt to arrest drug users. The problem arose when the cops started treating each other like criminals.

An all out brawl broke out between the officers. Chief James Craig had this to say about the fistfight:

“This is probably one of the most embarrassing things I’ve seen in this department... It appears that this supervisor did not have control of the situation, and had a tendency to get the officers from the 12th Precinct excited to the point we have this very embarrassing situation."
