LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- A La Crosse police sergeant faces a felony charge accusing him of threatening to kill his family.

The sheriff's department began investigating 45-year-old Patrol Sgt. Alan Iverson in response to a complaint from his wife on Feb. 19.

Investigators' reports say Iverson threatened his wife after she told him she wanted a divorce. Police later found a gun in his car.

Iverson has been charged in La Crosse County Circuit Court with threats to injure and disorderly conduct as a domestic abuse offense. The case will be handled by a judge from another county.

The La Crosse police department has placed Iverson on paid administrative leave.

Iverson's attorney did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press for comment.
