Document: Michigan State Police troopers having affair were involved in assault, cover up
(5/8/2019) - A police report details a sordid scheme by two Michigan State Police troopers who were involved in an affair to cover up a violent domestic assault incident.
The report says 25-year-old Adam Mullin, who is married, became romantically involved with his female partner at the Caro post at the beginning of 2018. He admitted to assaulting her multiple times.
ABC12 obtained a copy of the police report through the Freedom of Information Act.
The report says the female trooper, who is not being identified, went to the Michigan State Police Lapeer Post on Feb. 12, two days after she claimed she was physically assaulted by Mullin at the Bad Axe post.
Her injuries were so bad that two state police officials had to carry her into the building in Lapeer. There, she told investigators Mullin became jealous when she was talking to or contacted by other men.
On at least three occasions, she said Mullin assaulted her by hitting her, choking her or knocking her out of her chair.
The report says the final violent incident happened on the night of Feb. 10 inside the Michigan State Police Bad Axe Post.
The female trooper claims Mullin became jealous of her texting. At one point, the report says Mullin picked her up and threw her across the room.
She had injuries to her head, back and she told investigators she couldn't move her left leg.
The police report then details an alleged cover up of the assault involving both troopers.
Mullin suggested the two go back on the road and stage a slip and fall accident by the female trooper during a traffic stop.
Investigators reviewed in-car video and audio from Mullin's patrol car, which shows the troopers made a traffic stop in Bad Axe. Mullin allowed the pulled over driver to go saying, "I'm going to see what's going on with my partner back there. I think she fell."
The troopers then went to the hospital and the female trooper was admitted for her injuries.
When investigators questioned Mullin, the report says he admitted to assaulting his female partner on a number of occasions.
Mullin faces several charges, including assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. He remains on unpaid suspension from the Michigan State Police while awaiting a preliminary hearing later this month.
The female trooper had not returned to work by Wednesday.
Attorney Matthew Norwood, who is representing Mullin, issued the following statement on Thursday in response to this story:
