TMZ reports that Brian Mulligan, the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Deutsche's Media and Telecommunications unit, claims on May 15, he was in the L.A. suburb of Highland Park - near a marijuana dispensary - when he was approached by two LAPD officers.
Mulligan is said to have claimed that the cops walked up to him and asked why he was in the area, and then proceeded to search both him and his car. Mulligan says the officers found a large amount of cash in the car -- thousands of dollars -- and then put him in a police car and drove to a nearby motel.
Mulligan is thought to have claimed that the cops told him to stay in the room until they returned. He claims he waited several hours, but they never came back. He says he felt he was being set up to be robbed or killed, so he made a run for it. As he ran out, he says cops were right there and began beating him mercilessly.

The officers’ use of force in the case is undergoing a routine investigation, although both remain on their regular assignments.
Los Angeles city prosecutors are considering whether to file charges against Mulligan, said Frank Mateljan, spokesman for the city attorney’s office. An alternative also under consideration is to schedule a hearing to advise Mulligan how to avoid similar problems in the future, he said.
