MERRILL, WI (WSAU) -  Lincoln County deputies are conducting an investigation into an incident that took place at a bar in the Town of Merrill. The person of interest in the case is an employee of the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department.

Captain Mike Rakovich says he cannot release names or details of incident. All he can say at this stage of the investigation is that the community is not at risk, nobody was hurt in the incident, and that they have collected evidence which is being reviewed by the Wisconsin State Crime Lab. Until they have the crime lab results, Rakovich says they won’t know what, if any, charges are to be filed against the Waukesha county employee.

Rakovich says the person of interest is now the subject of an internal investigation at the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department, and has been cooperating with authorities in both counties.
