The fallout from the death of Whitney Houston is still happening two years since she passed. One of the responding officers is suing the LAPD for being fired after he reported a colleague for ogling Houston’s lifeless body at the scene.
Sgt. Brian Weir filed a lawsuit against the police department, alleging his co-worker Sgt. Terry Nutall bent down beside Whitney Houston’s body a few hours after her death in the Beverly Hilton hotel. Weir says when Nutall was kneeling beside Houston, he pulled the sheet back from her body and said, “Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?”
Weir reported the incident and says he suffered the consequences. The sergeant says he was let go from his positions on the SWAT and K-9 units for ratting on his fellow officer. On top of losing his spot on the aforementioned units, he was also denied promotions and benefits.
Weir is currently suing for unspecified damages. The LAPD has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
