MILWAUKEE (AP) — A correctional officer at the Milwaukee County Jail is accused of abusing an inmate.
Acting Sheriff Richard Schmidt said on Monday he ordered the arrest of the 43-year-old man from Milwaukee over the weekend.
In a news release, Schmidt said “Renegade staff will not be tolerated in the Sheriff’s Office.”
Sheriff’s detectives have filed reports with the District Attorney’s office.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that no details about the alleged abuse have been released. Schmidt says he will release more details after the DA’s office completes its review.
