SHOREWOOD, Wis. (AP) - The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office says a Shorewood police sergeant showed up for work smelling of alcohol.

The sheriff’s office was called about 1 a.m. Saturday to administer field sobriety tests. According to the sheriff’s office, the 31-year-old Milwaukee man registered a 0.16 percent blood-alcohol level in a preliminary breath test. That is twice Wisconsin’s legal limit for driving.

Authorities say the sergeant had a handgun under the seat of his car and also faces a misdemeanor count of endangering safety by use of a dangerous weapon.

The Shorewood Police Department declined comment to WISN-TV (https://bit.ly/2mJJ0ya ).
