Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner signed an arrest warrant for former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick this afternoon for failing to make a $79,011 court-ordered restitution payment stemming from his criminal case along with additional allegations that he failed to give a “complete and accurate accounting” of his wife’s finances.

The warrant also alleges that Kilpatrick failed to surrender all his tax refunds and did not account for all his gifts and benefits, including the $240,000 lent to him by various business leaders, including Peter Karmanos, Roger Penske, Dan Gilbert and Jim Nicholson.

The warrant was requested by the state Department of Corrections and Kilpatrick’s probation officer.
