WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. -

A Wisconsin Dells police sergeant was cited on suspicion of driving intoxicated and hitting a parked car last week.

Wisconsin Dells Police Chief Jody Ward said in a statement Wednesday that officers responded to a report of a hit-and-run accident at Zeus's Village on Highway A on July 17 at about 4 a.m.

Ward said Brown, who is a sergeant with the Dells police department, was off duty when the alleged accident occurred. The investigation was turned over to the State Patrol, the chief said.

Brown is suspended with pay, Ward said in the statement on Wednesday.
