Tallahassee, FL -- Tallahassee City Commissioner Andrew Gillum said "when it rains, it pours" when he was asked about the recent string of "high-profile" incidents involving the Tallahassee Police Department.

Coming off a grand jury decision that urged the Tallahassee Police Department to follow their own pracitces more closely after a controversial D.U.I. arrest video made national news, the department is now being accused of questionable practices again. This time, it's from the alleged victim accusing FSU quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault. She claims a TPD detective warned her about pursuing charges in the case.

Gillum said there should "absolutely" be a review after the case is completed.

"I think we've got to let it play out, it's still an active investigation, you still have the state attorney who has to make some decisions, but once that is done I think you have to go back and say 'what could we have done differently? what could we have done better?'" said Gillum.

State Attorney Willie Meggs said earlier in the week that nothing will be decided in the case until at least after the Thanksgiving holiday.
