LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The La Crosse City Council voted unanimously Thursday to accept a separation agreement with a La Crosse Police Sergeant.
Alan Iverson, 45, was arrested in February and pleaded no contest to one count of disorderly conduct in May. Iverson has been on paid leave since the incident.
As part of a plea deal, Iverson can no longer work for the La Crosse Police Department. Also as part of the plea deal, Iverson's misdemeanor charge will be dropped in two years if he accepts the separation agreement and continues counseling.
The specific terms of his agreement with the City of La Crosse are being negotiated separately. By law Iverson has until June 10 to officially accept the separation agreement.
Both the mayor and the police chief are withholding comment until Iverson makes a decision. That's also when the details will be released.
Editor's Note: We initially reported in this article Iverson pleaded guilty. That is incorrect. He pleaded no contest.
