Deutsche Media Executive Beaten To a Pulp by LAPD Officers (Video)

These are the pictures of high-flying  Deutsche Bank executive Brian Mulligan after he was allegedly beaten by police  in Los Angeles.

Mulligan, who serves as the managing director  and vice chairman of media for the powerful international bank, claims he was brutally attacked by the  LAPD, leaving him bruised, bloodied, and with lacerations across his  face.

The grisly pictures show both before and  after he underwent facial surgeries for a nasal fracture, allegedly after the  beat-down.

Mulligan’s lawyers told TMZ that officers concluded the banking executive was not  under the influence of any drugs at the time of the alleged altercation.

They told the celebrity gossip website: ‘Mulligan had committed no violations of law and was not arrested. No drugs were  found during a search of his person…and the officers found absolutely no  evidence of drug  use by Mulligan.’

A representative for the Los Angeles Police  told MailOnline that no statement has been released regarding the case.

According to an initial police report,  Mulligan, 53, appeared ‘out of it’ after officers responded to 911 calls about a  man trying to break into people’s cars at a drive-thru in Highland Park.

Mulligan seemed to be ‘under the influence  based on his behavior’, Lieutenant Andrew Neiman told MailOnline.

CBS Los  Angeles,  citing a police report seen exclusively  by the station, reported that officers were told by Mulligan he was  high on marijuana and had ingested ‘White  Lightning,’ another term for bath salts, and had not slept for four  days.

The bank executive was spotted wandering in a  confused state by passers-by on May 15, 2011 at around 10.40pm.

Due to his erratic behavior, officers called  a senior officer to the scene, who carried out a drug evaluation.

There was no definitive evidence of a  controlled substance that the LAPD test for, according to the police spokesman.

Mulligan told officers he was ‘tired and  exhausted’ and asked to be escorted to his car so he could collect belongings to  go to the local Highland Park  Motel.

When they reached the vehicle, there was a  large amount of money in the car, causing officers to call for back-up as is  protocol. Mulligan was then left at the motel by officers without further  incident.

Later that night at around 1am, the same officers who dropped Mulligan off at the  motel responded to reports of a man trying to get into vehicles.

They saw Mulligan in the street, running into  oncoming traffic. Officers called him  back on to the sidewalk, but rather than  comply, Mulligan assumed a‘combative stance’, striking martial arts  poses.

At that point, officers were forced to subdue  Mulligan adding that a ‘use of force then occurred’ before he was  arrested.

The businessman’s injuries required him to be  admitted to hospital for facial lacerations and as many as 15 nasal  fractures.

Earlier this month Mulligan sued the LAPD for  $50million, saying that during the 2011 encounter he was battered by the  police.

According to the Wall  Street Journal,  the Deutsche Bank executive further  alleged that the LAPD officers in question were  holding him hostage at the  motel where he was staying as a means to  steal the $5,000 he had on his person  at the time.

Mulligan’s lawyer Michael Flanagan told the  Journal that the officers stopped him  on a sidewalk in Los Angeles and  discovered $5,000 cash in his car.

At that point, Mr Flanagan said that his  client was driven to a hotel and told he would be killed if he attempted to  leave.

When, after a few hours, Mulligan did try to  leave, Mr Flanagan said that police found him and beat him  mercilessly.

According to TMZ,  Mulligan was booked for resisting arrest  as well as interfering with law enforcement.

The gossip website also reported that the  Deutsche exec suffered facial lacerations and as many as 15 nasal  fractures.

Lt Andrew Neiman said  the Force Investigation Division has  opened an inquiry into Mulligan’s arrest, adding that it will likely be a year  before it is completed.

A spokesman for Deutsche Bank declined to  comment on the case, but said that Mulligan has since been to work since the  events in May.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the  magnate has been a financial backer in the entertainment industry, having worked  at Fox Television and Universal Pictures.
