Sauk County Sheriff Chip Meister says the suspect has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation.

Few details were available Friday because charges hadn't yet been filed.

The man has a history of domestic-violence and abuse allegations brought forth by multiple women. In one case he allegedly shook a woman by her hair and assaulted her, causing a number of bruises. But the Juneau County prosecutor at the time didn't charge him, citing inconsistencies and a lack of witnesses.
