Mayor Dave Bing said the 44-year-old Godbee submitted a letter of retirement, effective immediately, from the job he’s held since 2010.
Bing said Godbee told him about his decision to retire during a meeting Sunday. The mayor said he did not force Godbee to leave but believes “this was the right decision by the chief.” Bing said Godbee was “contrite” and “embarrassed.”
“Yes, he did apologize … he felt he let the citizens of Detroit down,” Bing said at a news conference.
Godbee has not publicly commented on the revelations of his affair with Angelica Robinson. There was no mention of the scandal in an eight-paragraph letter dated Monday from Godbee to Bing that announced the former chief’s retirement. A copy of the letter was released to reporters after the news conference.
