Former Flint Police Detective Mary Buszek and Police Spokesman Tyrone Booth
Flint, Michigan city officials disclosed settlements paid to city employees for sexual harassment and discrimination at a city council meeting this week.
Former Flint police Det. Mary Buszek received $175,000 from the city after being repeatedly harassed by the department and police detective current spokesman Tyrone Booth. Buszek claims Booth ordered him to perform oral sex on her during the trade.
From a reader: “The largest payment of particularly significant money, so far, was $175K for the department’s current six-figure salary for the spokesperson. He remains on the job after demanding sex, harasses female co-workers with sexually suggestive texts and phone calls, orders a woman to perform oral sex at work, shoves his penis in her face while she works at a desk, tries to fire her for non-compliance. , then taunts her that she can’t do anything about it because he has so much City Hall influence.
The report was released to ABC12 this week.

Details of a sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuit against the city of Flint are now being made public.
ABC12 has obtained a copy of the lawsuit involving more than a dozen Flint employees in various departments. The Flint City Council recently voted to approve compensation for certain employees.
The biggest payday was given to former Flint police Det. Mary Buszek. While working for the department, Buszek claimed Tyrone Booth sexually harassed her with phone calls and text messages asking her to perform oral sex.
According to the lawsuit, Buszek says the harassment began shortly after she rejected Booth’s sexual advances. She believes she later received unfair and manufactured discipline.
During a recent Flint City Council meeting, Councilman Eric Mays voted against approving the $175,000 settlement because he believed the settlement was covered up.
“You might want to not discuss the facts because of who’s involved, and I understand that,” Mays said. “Is it in the best interest of the city? Sometimes the city’s best interest is to clean up the mess rather than hide it.
City Council members learned the details of the lawsuit in executive session, so what they discussed was not public information.
“We have heard all sides and have come to the conclusion that settling this lawsuit is in the best interest of the city of Flint,” said Councilman Quincy Murphy.
Here is a copy of the settlement.
