A Lake in the Hills police sergeant and candidate for Hebron village president has been accused of driving while intoxicated and striking a pedestrian.

Mark Mogan, 49, of Hebron was arrested by Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, police Tuesday on the charge of injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle, Lake in the Hills Police Public Information Officer Amanda Schmitt said.

About 5:20 p.m Tuesday, Mogan allegedly struck a 27-year-old Lake Geneva woman who was crossing the road at Edwards Boulevard and State Highway 120 in Lake Geneva, according to a report from Lakegenevanews.net.

The woman was transported in critical condition to Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa, the report stated.

Mogan was taken to Walworth County Jail, Schmitt said, and had a bond hearing Wednesday. He was placed on administrative leave with the Lake in the Hills Police Department on Wednesday, pending an investigation into the incident, Schmitt said.

Mogan has been with the Lake in the Hills Police Department for about 23 years, Schmitt said, and became a sergeant in 2004.

He also serves as a Hebron trustee, and filed to run for Hebron village president in the April 4 consolidated election against John Jacobson, who is facing drug and gun charges after his most recent arrest.

Lake Geneva police could not be reached for comment.
