MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Sheriff Richard Schmidt has submitted charges for discharge of a Milwaukee County deputy following several internal affairs investigations.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office said in a Friday statement that West Allis police recently cited Deputy Chad Haldemann for OWI while he was already suspended in relation to other investigations. Haldemann isn't being paid pending a Personnel Review Board hearing.

Schmidt says he expects deputies to hold the motoring public accountable, and he is committed to holding deputies accountable
