Detroit Mayor Ordered To Jail The Mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick , faces felony charges, including misconduct in office. He was free on his own recognizance until last week, when Wayne County officials claimed he assaulted them when they tried to serve a subpoena. Today, Kilpatrick's $7500 cash bond was revoked and he was sent to jail for leaving the country without permission. It's not clear who's running the city. Reporter Jim Schaefer of the Detroit Free Press was in the courtroom today.
