BREAKING NEWS: A federal appeals court rules 2-1 that subsidies that helped people buy insurance at healthcare.gov are illegal.

Outside agency to review Brown Deer PD's handling of Haughton 2011 standoff

BROWN DEER, WI (WTAQ) - The head of Brown Deer’s police commission says an outside agency will review a 2011 standoff in which Brookfield spa gunman Radcliffe Haughton was not arrested.

Jim Jiracek said the police department ordered the review – but the commission itself has no plans to take up the matter, or consider any type of action. He said the panel might do something later. But for now, at least, he’s confident that Police Chief Steve Rinzel and his officers did nothing wrong.

Some national police experts have criticized Brown Deer Police for not arresting Haughton 22 months ago, when officers saw him point what appeared to be a gun at his wife Zina. Rinzel said the officers could never determine that the apparent weapon was a gun.

Prosecutors later filed a disorderly conduct charge, but it was dropped after an officer failed to testify.

Media reports said Brown Deer Police were called to Haughton’s home 20 times over the last decade, before he shot and killed his estranged wife and two others last Sunday at the spa where his wife worked.

Haughton also wounded four other women before turning the gun on himself.
