Remember the early months of 2011, when Charlie Sheen lost his mind and job and decided he was a target of Vatican assassins? Remember #winning?

Metropolitan Police Department Captain Hilton Burton does. Burton, who gained notoriety last year after blaming MPD brass for organizing an escort for Sheen, was demoted from commander to captain last August. Now he’s filed a civil whistleblower lawsuit saying he was punished for complaining about the department’s celebrity-escort policy.

Burton is no stranger to MPD personnel lawsuits. Last year, he filed a case alleging Chief Cathy Lanier was purging the department of its top black cops.
