LINCOLN COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - An employee of the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department is being investigated for an incident at a bar near Merrill.

Deputies in Lincoln County, where the bar is located, are investigating. And Waukesha County officers are also doing what they call a “professional conduct review.”

Neither county is saying what happened.

Lincoln County captain Mike Rakovich said nobody was hurt in the incident, the community is not at risk, and the State Crime Lab is reviewing evidence.

Rakovich said his investigators won’t know what, if any, charges to request until the crime lab results come in.

For now, the employee is on administrative leave.
