DETROIT (AP) - Michigan prison officials have ordered ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to wear an electronic tether and live with his mother while they investigate his receipt of an unreported $2,000 gift from a Chicago pastor.

He's on parole for a 2008 state conviction for obstruction of justice and could be sent back to prison. He's now on trial on federal corruption charges.

Kilpatrick owes $800,000 to Detroit and must report his income.

He received a $2,000 wire transfer in December from the Rev. Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church.

Parole agents interviewed Kilpatrick Thursday before the state issued the order. His mother is ex-U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick.

The Corrections Department has posted a video online of Kilpatrick getting the cash at an area Walmart store.
