BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- A Beverly Hills police sergeant is suing the city, claiming he faced retaliation after reporting that a detective made inappropriate remarks about Whitney Houston's body at her death scene.

City News Service says Sgt. Brian Weir filed the suit Monday in Los Angeles.
 
Houston was 48 when she drowned in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton two years ago. Weir contends that a detective sergeant kneeling by the singer's body removed a sheet and remarked that she was "still looking good," along with similar comments.
 
Weir says that when he reported the alleged remarks, he was harassed, removed from the SWAT and K-9 units and denied promotions.
 
Police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino says he wasn't aware of the lawsuit but that he considers similar claims Weir made earlier to be baseless.
