Sheriff's deputy facing charges
Mike Stalker, 42, of 5320 N. Sable Court, Milton, was arrested at his home at 3:30 p.m., according a sheriff's office report.
An "open line from (the) residence indicated a disturbance" at 10:23 a.m. that day, the report reads.
Chief Deputy Barbara Tillman said Stalker still is employed by the sheriff's office, but she declined to give further details.
After the Gazette initially contacted the sheriff's office for information about Stalker's arrest, Tillman returned the call and said only that an investigation of an employee is ongoing. She declined to identify the employee but said the person is on administrative leave with pay pending the outcome of an investigation by the Dane County Sheriff's Office.
