TREMPEALEAU COUNTY (WKOW) -- A county supervisor's actions are under investigation. He's accused of using his office to advance his own sand mining business.
The Star Tribune of Minneapolis reports a Wisconsin district attorney is investigating Trempealeau County Board Supervisor David Suchla for possible threats. He's accused of threatening a high-level county administrator to keep quiet about a business relationship Suchla had with a large Texas-based company interested in mining silica sand in his district.
La Crosse County District Attorney Tim Gruenke will decide over the next few weeks whether to prosecute. Suchla denies any self-dealing as a public official.
