A New Richmond police officer was arrested Friday, July 11, by the Roberts Police Department and has been placed on administrative leave, according to New Richmond Police Chief Mark Samelstad.
According to the county’s jail log, Anthony George Milliron, 52, an officer with the New Richmond Police Department, was booked into jail as a suspect in a domestic battery and disorderly conduct incident and also in suspicion of violating a 72-hour non-contact order.
The original domestic disturbance occurred at the park-and-ride lot at 701 Highway 65 in the Village of Roberts at about 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 10, according to a press release issued by the Roberts Police Department. "After an investigation of the incident, Anthony Milliron was subsequently arrested for domestic disorderly conduct and domestic battery," the release said. "Milliron was transported to the St. Croix County Jail where he was booked in. Milliron posted bond on the charges and was released."
According to a St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office incident report, Milliron was found to be in violation of the non-contact order by going back to his home in the Town of Richmond immediately upon his release in the early morning hours of Friday, July 11.
A St. Croix County Sheriff’s deputy arrested Milliron at his home and again booked him into jail on the afternoon of Friday, July 12. Milliron again posted bond and was released.
"Officer Milliron will remain on administrative leave pending an internal investigation by this department into his arrest and a final outcome on the criminal charges," Samelstad said in an email.
The original incident remains under investigation by the Roberts Police Department.
Milliron is scheduled for an initial appearance in St. Croix County Circuit Court at 1 p.m. on Aug. 4.
