Judge Mathis Denies Spitting On Detroit Valet

DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) — The Detroit Police department is investigating an alleged incident involving popular TV Judge Greg Mathis.

It happened outside a club on Saint Antoine Street in Downtown Detroit, where Mathis allegedly spit on a valet worker.

Mathis, who is also a Detroit native, denies the allegation.

Mathis said the employee took 40 minutes to bring him his car.

"It was a 40 minute wait, and when he came yes, I yelled at him and asked him why would he take my car for 40 minutes," said Mathis.

Mathis says he and the employee had a "verbal back and forth" but that was it.

"It was no spitting, there were six witnesses there," said Mathis.
