HAZEL GREEN, WI (WTAQ) - Investigators did not have to look far to confirm that the former police chief in Hazel Green was working under the influence of alcohol.

The village attorney said Brian Klein had a blood alcohol level of 0.07 when he met with an investigator from nearby Platteville on September 19th.

Village attorney Eileen Brownlee said a number of residents complained that Chief Klein had been working under the influence.

The village asked Platteville Police to check it out. And while Klein was not legally drunk when he met with the investigator, Brownlee said it was the "catalyst" for Klein submitting his resignation.

It took effect September 30th in Hazel Green, which is in Grant and Lafayette counties.
