SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) – Elkhart Lake’s police chief says the mayor of Sheboygan was given a verbal warning after getting into a barroom scuffle.
Chief Randy Boeldt says no arrests were made after Mayor Bob Ryan created a disturbance at the Brown Baer tavern about 1:30 a.m. Monday. The mayor, an admitted alcoholic, initially said he was drinking in Elkhart Lake Saturday, but later said on WHBL that his drinking binge there spanned three days and that he passed out at least once. A police report released Thursday says Ryan was the aggressor in a fight at the Brown Baer.
Sheboygan City Council members have called for Ryan’s resignation. The mayor says he doesn’t plan to quit and will seek outpatient treatment.
The Sheboygan Press says the police report indicates the mayor was given a warning because there was no complainant or victim.
