Freeborn County deputy placed on leave after officially running for sheriff

Posted: Updated:
ALBERT LEA, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Freeborn County Sheriff's Office deputy was placed on paid administrative leave on Friday for allegations of misconduct. The move came hours after Dale Glazier filed his papers to run for sheriff.   

County Administrator John Kluever said the Rochester Police Department is handling the investigation, and a resolution could be reached by the end of the week.

Glazier has been with the Sheriff's Office since 2003 and is running against incumbent Sheriff Bob Kindler and deputy Kurt Freitag.

Glazier has not been told what the allegations are.

"At this point in time there's no legal responsibility or obligation that we give him details of the allegation," said Kluever. "If future steps are taken, there are some trigger points that that information would be released to him."

Glazier said that he learned some of the details from local reporters, and that the county hasn't told him anything.

We will bring you more on this situation as more information becomes available.
