A Beverly Hills police sergeant is suing the city, claiming he faced retaliation after reporting that a detective in his unit made inappropriate remarks about Whitney Houston’s body at the scene of her death.

In a lawsuit, Sgt. Brian Weir alleges that just hours after the singer’s death, a fellow sergeant from the Beverly Hills Police Department lifted a sheet covering the superstar’s naked body and said: “Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?”
