A western Wisconsin police chief is facing an OWI charge after wrecking a city car last week.
The State Patrol is handling the investigation into Eleva Police Chief Patrick McKillip. Trempealeau County prosecutors filed OWI charges against the chief on Monday. The charges stem from a crash last Thursday just outside the police department. The reports confirm the chief was driving a city-issued Ford. There’s also no information about who or what he hit, whether anyone else was hurt, and whether Eleva has placed the chief on any kind of leave. He’s due back in court in April to answer the OWI charge.
