Superior, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- A former Superior police officer, who quit amidst charges of perjury, will not face criminal charges after an internal investigation found there was not enough evidence to criminally prosecute former Superior Police Captain Chad Lalor.
The Sheriffs in Washburn and Bayfield Counties jointly investigated the allegations and gave Superior District Attorney Dan Blank that decision today.
Because of these findings, there will be no criminal charges sought against Lalor.
Back in January, Captain La Lor was accused of giving false testimony while under oath at a Police and Fire commission hearing that occurred in November.
According to witnesses at that hearing, La Lor had been called to testify regarding potential disciplinary action against another officer.
The line of questioning also focused on a drunken driving incident in March of 2009, for which La Lor himself had been temporarily suspended from the force.
At that time the issue of whether he had had prior drinking and driving violations came up to which La Lor said he had none.
Lalor resigned from his post last month at the Superior Police Department due to this investigation.
Superior District Attorney Dan Blank asks that the "Superior Police Department...put the November PFC hearing, its aftermath, and the internal accusations against each other behind them and move forward again in serving and protecting the City of Superior".
