Muskego man who was arrested for OWI in April in Milwaukee is charged with a misdemeanor for fleeing; officer who hit Strasser will not be reprimanded, but is instructed to undergo training for his use of profanity.
According to Patch's media partner at Fox 6, Muskego man Jeffrey Strasser has been charged with fleeing an officer in the wake of an incident in downtown Milwaukee in April 2012.
