Milwaukee County deputy sheriff under federal investigation

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke ordered a deputy sheriff be placed on administrative duty after learning the deputy is under federal investigation.

The deputy is not being named at this time because no charge has yet been issued -- and it is still under investigation.
