Whitney Houston, seen here two days before her death, was found lifeless in a hotel bathtub on Feb. 11, 2012. Ex-SWAT officer Brian Weir alleges that a police sergeant lifted the sheet covering Houston’s naked body and make ‘inappropriate’ comments.

A Beverly Hills police sergeant snuck a peek at Whitney Houston‘s naked dead body and made “inappropriate” comments about the pop icon after she was pulled lifeless from a hotel bathtub last year, a claim filed by a former Beverly Hills SWAT supervisor states.

“Damn, she’s still looking good, huh?” the sergeant allegedly said after lifting a sheet covering Houston’s corpse.

The sergeant knelt beside Houston to remove the sheet “to an area below the pubic region,” and also said she “looked attractive for a woman of her age and current state,” the legal claim filed by ex-SWAT officer Brian Weir and obtained by the Los Angeles Times states.

Weir filed his claim for damages against the police department and the city alleging that he was retaliated against after he reported the misconduct.

He said the sergeant acted with reckless disregard for the integrity of the potential crime scene and should have known his behavior “would outrage ordinary family sensibilities.”

Weir said that after he complained to his superiors, he was removed from the city’s elite SWAT and K-9 units, denied promotions and training and relieved of supervisory duties.
