SQUATTER HYPOCRISY: Although Detroit has been bailed out, the city remains fraught with problems like squatters, one watchdog helps a landlord get rid of one.

Charlie LeDuff, a Fox 2 reporter known for his offbeat exposés, went mano a mano with a Wayne County squatter.

Lynn Arthur Williams Jr., on probation for a felonious assault with a deadly weapon, had taken up residence in a single-family Detroit home bought by Sarah Hamilton-Gilmer.

Hamilton-Gilmer planned on a third-party short sale with the house, but Williams wouldn’t budge. Police were called; the squatter accused the homeowner of attacking Williams with a car; the homeowner denied the accusation but still went to jail. As for Williams? The squatter remained comfortably ensconced in Hamilton-Gilmer’s abode.

End of story? Not by a long shot.

Watch what happens when LeDuff turns the tables on Williams.
