Milwaukee resident Dan Black says Clarke had deputies question him after a flight because he shook his head at the lawman, who has gained national prominence for supporting Donald Trump. Black says in a complaint submitted to the sheriff's website, he shook his head because Clarke was wearing Dallas Cowboys clothes on Sunday, Jan. 15, 2017, when they played the Green Bay Packers.

Scott Applewhite, File)MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee man says a tough-talking, cowboy-hat wearing Wisconsin sheriff detained him after a flight because the man shook his head at the lawman, who has gained a national prominence for his outspoken support of Donald Trump.
