The Hales Corners Fire Captain accused of sexual harassment and abandoning a shift resigned hours before his appeal hearing Tuesday according to Fire and Police Commission Ian Thomson.

Capt. John Wagner was placed on administrative leave in January for scheduling errors.

In January of 2017, TODAY'S TMJ4 reported that the Hales Corners Fire Department didn't have a single firefighter on duty who could operate a fire engine.Hales Corners Village Administrator Sandy Kulik told us the captain behind the scheduling error was placed on paid leave that same day.

"All I can tell you is that they're working on it," said Kulik.

Wagner's appeal hearing was originally scheduled for Tuesday night, but was canceled due to it being moot.
