LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - The Town of Campbell has placed embattled Police Chief Tim Kelemen on leave pending an investigation into possibly illegal activity.
Kelemen is accused of harassing a member of a tea party group who had filed a lawsuit against him for violating his free speech rights. The conflict came after Kelemen enforced a city ordinance banning billboards from the Interstate 90 overpass on French Island due to concerns they would distract drivers below.
The group had organized a demonstration in which members displayed billboards calling for the impeachment of President Obama.
Kelemen is under investigation for using Greg Luce's name to register for websites, some of them pornographic, with the intent to embarrass him.
