DEPUTY STABBED IN CHIPPEWA COUNTY

DEPUTY STABBED IN CHIPPEWA COUNTY

We now know names of those involved in an officer stabbing over the weekend. It just before 10 on Saturday morning that officers responded to a call of a suspicious person on 90th Street near Highway 29. The caller said his brother, 35 year old Travis A Abbiehl was not taking his proper medication and was acting erratic.

Upon deputies’ arrival, they saw a male seated in a vehicle parked on 90th Street holding a knife, being harmful to himself. Deputies approached the vehicle after several attempts to communicate and the man charged and stabbed Sgt. Andrew Clark a 12 year veteran of the Chippewa County Sheriff’s Department, in the shoulder. Tasers were deployed twice before the Abbiehl was able to be taken into custody.

Clark was transported to a hospital, was treated, and is expected to recover from the injury. Travis Abbiehl is currently in custody facing numerous charges regarding the incident.
