4/17 Two Deputies Honored as Medal of Valor Recipients

Two Washington County Sheriff’s deputies were honored during the Washington County Board meeting Tuesday for their efforts in thwarting an attempted armed robbery at the Culver’s Restaurant in Jackson last October. According to the criminal complaint, when deputies arrived the manager of the restaurant was struggling with a suspect, a 24-year-old Waukesha man, over control of a shotgun. The suspect had stabbed the manager with a knife in the head and pointed the shotgun at the deputies and a Jackson police officer.  The deputies and officer fired on the suspect. Both the manager of the restaurant and the suspect were transported to the hospital to be treated for injuries. Both men survived the incident. For their courage during the incident Deputies Scott Nauman and Keith Uhan were awarded the Sheriff’s Medal of Valor.  The Jackson Police Officer was Officer Ron Laabs.
