MINOCQUA, Wis. — The Minocqua police chief has resigned from his job following a settlement in a workplace dispute.

WJFW-TV reports (http://bit.ly/17zEI1c ) the town board accepted Police Chief Andy Gee's resignation Wednesday night.

Gee's resignation comes after the town reached a $100,000 settlement with Gee's former administrative assistant, Julie Mager.

Mager had accused Gee of shouting at her so loudly it could be heard throughout the department. She says the chief intimidated and discriminated against her.

Gee says his resignation is in the best interests of the police department.

Gee has been chief for six years. The town board appointed police Lt. Dave Jaeger to lead the department until a permanent replacement is found.
