SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

It's Kwame Kilpatrick like you've never seen him before.  No, he is not running the city or marching into court.  He's in a video game.  It's called "Angry Kwames".  The game is pretty simple.  You chuck bags of cash in the air and hope they land either on fake Kwame's gigantic head or an object that will fall on his head to win the game.

Think this has to be a joke?  Check out your phone.  The app is already available on Androids and costs $1.99.

The YouTube trailer and the Facebook page say it was created by 313 Games.  We tried to reach them, but nobody responded.

According to the Facebook page, the developers are currently working on a version of "Angry Kwames" compatible with the iPhone.

So what does the former mayor say?  He told us he knows nothing about the game and was never contacted by anyone asking permission to use his likeness.
