DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit's mayor has suspended the city's police chief amid allegations that the married chief had a sexual relationship with a subordinate.

Mayor Dave Bing says he suspended Ralph Godbee for 30 days but didn't elaborate on the allegations.

Attorney David Robinson tells The Associated Press Godbee had a relationship with his client, 37-year-old internal affairs officer Angelica Robinson.

David Robinson, who is not related to his client, says she posted a photo of herself on Twitter with a gun in her mouth after learning Godbee was at a weekend conference with another woman.

He says Godbee had other officers locate Angelica Robinson and put her under surveillance. She has since been assigned other work in the department.

Police spokeswoman Eren Stephens said Tuesday afternoon that Godbee could not be reached for comment.
