Charges Not Yet Filed Against WISN-TV Sports Director Dan Needles
Channel 12 sports director was released on bail after being arrested for a domestic disturbance in Waukesha on Sunday.
Dan Needles, the sports director for WISN-TV (Channel 12), has not yet been charged following his arrest for a reported domestic disturbance in Waukesha.
Police took Needles into custody after his live-in girlfriend reported at 2:52 p.m. Sunday that he attacked her in the 3600 block of Oak Valley Lane.
Details surrounding the arrest remain limited as the case is pending. The Waukesha County District Attorney’s office is reviewing the case and will hopefully soon have a charging decision, said District Attorney Brad Schimel in an email to Waukesha Patch.
WISN declined to answer questions about Needles employment status following his arrest. The TV station does not discuss personnel information to the media, said Jan Wade, president and general manager of the station.
