MINOCQUA, WI (WTAQ) - The police chief in Minocqua has resigned, after the northern Wisconsin tourist town reached a settlement with his former administrative assistant.
The town board accepted Andy Gee's resignation Wednesday night after six years as chief.
The town reached a $100,000 settlement with his former aide Julie Mager.
Media reports said Mager accused the chief of shouting so loudly at her, it could be heard throughout the police station. She claimed Gee discriminated against her, and intimidated her.
Lieutenant Dave Jaeger will temporarily head up the Minocqua police department until permanent chief can be hired.
