There is now a call for Chippewa County’s sheriff to step down.
Chippewa County Board Supervisor Rob Teuteberg late Tuesday said Sheriff Travis Hakes should step down immediately. Teuteberg is a former Chippewa Falls Police officer, he said it’s his opinion that Sheriff Hakes is unfit to lead the sheriff’s department.
The county this week released a 100-page report on the investigation into the sheriff, it focused on sexually suggestive memes and complaints that the sheriff is unpredictable.
Sheriff Hakes yesterday said the report was poorly done, biased, and inaccurate. He says his political opponents are driving the push to get him out of the sheriff’s office.
