MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office has placed a deputy on administrative duty after learning the deputy is under federal investigation.
The unidentified deputy has been under federal investigation for more than two years.
In a statement, Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. said Saturday the move was made because the deputy had not informed the sheriff’s office of the investigation. The nature of the investigation was not disclosed.
No charges have been filed. The name of the deputy is not being released while the investigation continues. A spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation declined comment to the Journal Sentinel (https://bit.ly/20A1IK7).
