Dundee police chief arrested for domestic violence incident

Dundee Police Chief Todd Opperman was arrested Wednesday after for an alleged domestic violence incident at his home.

"It was an altercation with the chief's wife," said David Uhl, Village of Dundee Manager. "I'm not sure of what transpired, I have not seen the report yet."

Dundee officials say Opperman, formerly of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, was released Thursday from the Monroe County Jail with no charges. 

He is currently on paid administrative leave until the prosecutor's office makes a decision.

"I believe the Monroe County prosecutor is going to send it to an outside agency, prosecutor, for review," Uhl said.

Officials also tell Fox 2 this is not the first time authorities have been called to Opperman's house.

"I believe there is a divorce in progress and I believe a week ago he called the sheriffs department to file a report," Uhl said. 

FOX 2: "Against her?"

"Yes," Uhl said.

The Oppermans' next door neighbor Chris Bortel said he received a text message from Todd Opperman's wife Wednesday. 

"The nature (of it) was just being frustrated over the situation," Bortel said. "And whether or not something can be done to salvage their marriage."

Those who know the family say they hope they are able to work it out for sake of the children.

For the sake of the children just to have some sort of resolution," Bortel said. "You don't want to see them suffer."
