Former Detroit City Council president Gil Hill, who played a foul-mouthed, finger-pointing Detroit Police inspector in three "Beverly Hills Cop" movies, owes more than $20,000 in delinquent state taxes.
Records reviewed by The Detroit News say the state of Michigan filed a $20,150 lien against Hill last October with the Wayne County Register of Deeds. He owes income taxes assessed last year.
The 78-year-old Hill, who in 2001 narrowly lost to Kwame Kilpatrick in the mayor's race, is a former Detroit police commander who had a 30-year career with the department. He appeared as salty Inspector Douglas Todd in the films.
Hill could not be immediately reached for comment and Hill's spokeswoman told the News that she no longer represents him.
