UPDATE: New Richmond officer was arrested twice before being put on leave last week


New Richmond (WQOW) - A western Wisconsin police officer who was placed on administrative leave had been arrested twice last week.

New Richmond Police Officer Tony Milliron was put on leave last week. Monday, WQOW News 18 learned Milliron was arrested Thursday night for an alleged domestic abuse incident involving his wife. She told police he struck her about six times on the head and arm, and placed his hands around her neck during an argument in his truck.

Officials say she had visible injuries, but did not seek medical attention. Police say Milliron denied hitting her, but admitted grabbing her. Milliron posted bond and was released from jail, with orders not to have any contact with his wife or their home.

Police say he violated that rule and went to the home when he was released, so he was arrested again. He is due in court on both cases next month.
