JULY 24, 2008: Detective Brian White and Joanne Kinney, an investigator from Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy's office, attempted to serve Bobby Ferguson with a subpoena while he was at the home of Kilpatrick's sister, Ayanna. Kilpatrick was there at the time and, along with his bodyguards, stopped the officers from entering the residence, which led to Kilpatrick allegedly pushing one of the sheriff's deputies. Kilpatrick later pled no contest to one felony count of assaulting and obstructing a police officer in exchange for a second assault charge being dropped. As part of the deal, he also agreed to resign from office and serve 120 days in jail.
