By Fox 2 News Staff

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick can't seem to keep out of trouble.  He is now being forced to wear a tether after a story uncovered by Fox 2's M.L. Elrick.

In that report, Elrick explained that Kilpatrick had received a $2,000 wire transfer from a Chicago pastor, but that state corrections officials say he didn't report the gift to his parole officer.

The transaction was captured by a surveillance camera at a Walmart store in Macomb County.
