READSTOWN, WI (WTAQ) - Two new felony charges have been filed against a Wisconsin police chief who was already facing eight counts alleging a variety of misconduct. Readstown Chief Shay Larson is free on a signature bond, and he’s due back in Vernon County Circuit Court on March 26th for a continued initial appearance on all 10 charges. The newest ones are for second-degree sexual assault and intimidating a victim. In court testimony, a sheriff’s investigator said Larson inappropriately touched a 14-year-old boy several times while doing community service work – and Larson reportedly threatened the youngster if he told anyone. The boy came forward after hearing that Larson was arrested. The earlier charges accuse him of improperly touching a female drug informant, joining drinkers at a birthday party at a park in Readstown, and having a woman give him oral sex three times. Larson was arrested March second in Nebraska, a day after his first eight charges were filed. Larson was investigated for six months before he was taken to court.
