Martin Hellwig also allegedly used a police vehicle to drive to the male prostitute’s house in North Jersey while on duty.

Kane confirmed the legitimacy of documents purported to be a police report and copies of e-mail messages between Hellwig and the alleged hooker, Jason Taylor.

Hellwig refused to say much when Kane confronted him at a City Council meeting, but he did deny being suspended because he “solicited a prostitute with a city computer on city time.”

Officially, the public safety director was suspended for misusing city equipment.
