Police Chief Suspended After Domestic Assault, Which Came After Disorderly Conduct

SEBEKA, Minn. – Sebeka Police Chief Eric Swenson has been suspended with pay by the city following a domestic assault citation, which may violate Swenson’s probation for a prior misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.

Deputy Mayor Lowell Stewart said Swenson was suspended on the advice of City Attorney Jeff Pederson until “resolution of the issues that are on the table.”

Sebeka is about 50 miles southeast of Detroit Lakes.

According to the Wadena County Sheriff’s Office, on May 7 a witness at the Huntersville Outpost bar called the sheriff’s office to report that Swenson was “drunk and belligerent,” shouting obscenities with families and children present.
