It is also known that the police department has several internal and external problems. The civil rights of an Elm Grove teenager ticketed in connection with a 1999 underage drinking hoax were violated by a police officer who jumped a residential fence and entered the yard, a federal judge has ruled ( [http://www2.jsonline.com/news/wauk/nov01/hoax08110701a.asp] . It has been found through public record that the same police officer, Officer John Krahn, also has a conviction for Disorderly Conduct after being involved in a domestic dispute with his wife in November 2004. He was initially charged with a Domestic Abuse Violation, which was later reduced to Disorderly Conduct ( see [http://wcca.wicourts.gov/caseDetails.do;jsessionid=6EACCA9367B230880987DA22D045FA74.render5?countyNo=67&caseNo=2004CM003430&cacheId=17E7688DB283ABCD4DA3181377953E34&recordCount=6&offset=3&mode=charges] . It is unknown why he is still able to work as a police officer.
