SUSPENSION WITHOUT PAY OF POLICE OFFICER MITCHELL QUINN,
BADGE 3005, ASSIGNED TO HOMICIDE

On February 19, 2008, the Internal Affairs Alert Team was directed to respond to the Northwestern District regarding an allegation of Felonious Assault/Domestic Violence committed by Police Officer Mitchell Quinn, badge 3005, assigned to Homicide.

On this same date, Officer Quinn’s wife, Police Officer Nicholle Quinn, badge 561, assigned to the Western District made a Crisnet report at the Northwestern District, alleging that her husband pointed his department issued weapon at her head during a verbal argument about several emails.

When Officer Nicholle Quinn attempted to make a 911 call on her cellular phone, Officer Mitchell Quinn grabbed her phone and broke it. Later, Officer Mitchell Quinn then threw his gun against the wall.

On the following day, Officer Mitchell Quinn’s son told the Wayne County Prosecutor’s office that he observed his father point a gun at this mother and push her down.

The Honorable Magistrate Sidney Barthwell Jr., of the 36th District Court, signed felony warrant #08-56835, which recommended one (1) count of Felonious Assault and one (1) count of Felony Firearm.

On February 20, 2008, Officer Mitchell Quinn was suspended from the Detroit Police Department.

Later on this date, Officer Mitchell Quinn was arraigned via video before Magistrate Charles Anderson III, of the 36th District Court. He was released on a $5,000.00 personal bond with a no contact provision.

The preliminary examination is scheduled for March 4, 2008.
