Then came her account of former police chief John Mooney standing before her, angry and red-faced, telling her she could not speak to officers. Those were some of the stories recounted in court as Petersen testified in a whistle-blower lawsuit Mooney has brought against the city, Petersen and Mayor Lorenzo Langford.
