A recently discovered search warrant dated March 21 let investigators search Google for “information associated” with the ex-lawman’s email account
David Clarke, the controversial former sheriff of Milwaukee County, was being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as recently as this Spring.
They want info on communications from or after January 15 regarding the detention of Dan Black. Yes, that Dan Black, the guy who sued Clarke in February for allegedly having him detained and interrogated by deputies after a flight to Milwaukee.
Black claims that it was Clarke who started the confrontation, asking him during the flight if he “had a problem.” He also said that the sheriff’s office later posted a threatening statement, “Next time he or anyone else pulls this stunt on a plane they may get knocked out. The Sheriff said he does not have to wait for some goof to assault him. He reserved the reasonable right to pre-empt a possible assault.” His office declined to comment on the lawsuit February.
The Feds are investigating him for allegedly misusing his authority as sheriff.
