When officers told Ferguson he was being given a citation, Ferguson allegedly explained who he was and asked them to "help him out." He claimed there had been a misunderstanding, but his colleagues did not buy the excuses.
According to Fox2, Ferguson was cited for "indecent and obscene conduct" after undercover members of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department spotted him engaging in sex acts with a woman in his vehicle around 7:15 am Wednesday near Shaefer Highway and Schoolcraft Road.
Officers claimed they saw Ferguson stop his vehicle, speak with a woman known to be a prostitute, before letting her in and driving to the scene of the alleged crime.
When they approached Ferguson, he stepped out and revealed his position, at the department, that is. He was handed a citation, and his vehicle was towed.
"A title or position doesn't make them above the law," Capt. Jason Bates stated.
As WXYZ-TV Detroit reports, Ferguson said the whole situation was a "big misunderstanding," painting a completely different picture than that provided by responding officers.
Ferguson claimed that the woman jumped into his passenger seat when he pulled over to check out a noise in his trunk.
"I start screaming at her, get the F out of my truck," he said. "She's hollering out, 'please help me. He's going to kill me.' I said I don't even care, get out of my truck."
District 4 Police Commissioner called Ferguson's claims "a made up story," saying, "People don't jump in your car ... You got caught in the act; simple as that!"
In a statement announcing his resignation, Ferguson said it had been "an honor and a privilege to serve the residents of Detroit in police oversight," adding that his decision was made "after further consideration of the best interests of my family and the board."
Ferguson has a wife, and said it would be "rough" to have to explain the situation to her.
