NEW ULM, Minn. (AP) - The police chief of New Ulm is accused of domestic assault and disorderly conduct.

Myron Wieland is expected to appear in court Friday in Faribault County where he has been jailed since Wednesday.

Watonwan County is prosecuting the case. County Attorney Stephen Lindee said Friday Wieland is charged with three misdemeanors. He’s accused of assaulting an unidentified person at his home in New Ulm on Monday evening.

The case is being prosecuted outside Brown County to avoid a conflict of interest. The 54-year-old Wieland has been chief in New Ulm for six years and has been with the department for 28 years. Jail records do not list a defense attorney.
