Menomonee Falls part-time firefighter Nicholas Hager has been placed on administrative leave after allegedly threatening Governor Scott Walker on Facebook. 

The 45-year-old was charged with two misdemeanors, a computer message threat to injure or harm and disorderly conduct.

Wisconsin State Capitol Police say he made the following comment on a post on state Rep. Dana Wachs' Facebook page about Governor Walker and a recent school shooting: 

"I suggest we take all our firearms to the governor's mansion and executing the parasite." 

Hager told police he did not mean any actual harm by his post, and that his political "colorful" posts have not gotten him into any trouble in the past. He will remain on administrative leave until court proceedings have ended.
