A Burnett County Sheriff’s Deputy has been charged with operating while intoxicated.  

The incident occurred in December when Trevor Thiex, who also serves with the Siren Police Department, was pulled over in Shawno County on Christmas Eve after a witness reported a blue van driving erratically.  

Deputy Thiex cooperated with police and was later released on a cash bond.  

The deputy was charged with OUI 1st offense with a 10-year old child passenger.  

Thiex is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the case. He is scheduled to appear in Shawno County court in March.
