DeForest Police Chief Dan Furseth has been on paid administrative leave since May, according to village officials.
Village Administrator Steve Falhgren tells 27 News that the move was made following the discovery of a YouTube video that reportedly is Furseth making some comments about a group of black men in a parking lot. Fahlgren adds that he believes the video was taken at least 10-11 years ago.
The video was posted in 2015.
Fahlgren adds that Furseth has been on administrative leave for the past several weeks. Stay tuned to 27 News at 5 and 6, as well as WKOW.com for the latest developments.
