IMPERIAL, Neb. (AP) - A police chief in southwest Nebraska has been accused of violating child custody orders.

Chase County Court records say the charges against the Imperial chief, Ryan Wisnieski, 38, include felony violation of a custody order and felony aiding and abetting a violation of a custody order.

The records say the violations occurred Feb. 7 but don’t provide specifics beyond the legal language. The wording for the violation of a custody order says Wisnieski “took or enticed a child under the age of 18 years from the custody of its parent having legal custody. …”

Wisnieski remains on the job. He declined to comment Tuesday, referring The Associated Press to his attorney. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call.

His arraignment is scheduled for March 11.
