DELAVAN, WI (WTAQ) - The Town of Delavan police and fire commission has terminated the employment of police officer Jeremiah Burdick.

The unanimous decision was made after a meeting was held last week.

Burdick was accused of being drunk August 12th when he drove to the Vegas Gentleman’s Club in the town of Darien.

He reportedly showed his police ID in an attempt to get in for free. Once inside, witnesses said the veteran officer was offensive to dancers and other customers.

When Walworth County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene, they found him urinating in the parking lot. Open beers were found in his car.

Burdick had been a full-time officer with the town of Delavan for more than 5 years.
