Head of Detroit Police Commission says she was unaware that she couldn't have city car

DETROIT (WXYZ) - When the Chairperson of the Detroit Board of Police Commissioners wanted the use of a city-owned car, she didn't think it would be a problem, but it was.

And Police Chief James Craig wanted to find out why Jessica Taylor was using one of the police department's vehicles after his staff had informed the board's secretary, on March 5, that the request had been denied.

The board's secretary, George Anthony, tells 7 Action News that he informed Taylor that her request for a vehicle was denied on March 5.

Anthony, who is a lawyer, says Taylor then directed him to request the vehicle through the board's Chief Investigator, Pamela Davis-Drake. 

That request was approved.

Taylor claims Anthony never told her that the vehicle request had been denied by the chief.

Taylor said the vehicle is a 2004 Chevy Impala with over 200,000 miles on it. 

She returned it on Tuesday.
