  • Written by Wheeler

The Wisconsin Dells Common Council has decided a letter written by the city's police chief was inappropriate and justifies a suspension. 

Chief Jody Ward wrote the letter on behalf of bar owner James S. Connors who faced sentencing for his sixth-offense O-W-I.  Ward agreed to the suspension without pay starting October 11th.  Connors was given a withheld sentence September 18th, with six months conditional jail time, and his driver's license was suspended for three years.
