After a strange encounter while in the boarding process with an unknown person, former Sheriff Clarke had that person met at the airport and questioned. It was obvious that due to the behavior by Daniel Black, that he felt threatened. After the encounter, Black filed a lawsuit against Clarke.

A federal judge has ordered former Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke to face trial in connection with a First Amendment complaint filed in response to his Facebook posts.
U.S. District Judge J. P. Stadtmueller has scheduled a jury trial to start later this month concerning a couple of Facebook posts published following an incident that unfolded onboard a Milwaukee-bound aircraft last January between Mr. Clarke and the plaintiff, local resident Daniel Black.
Mr. Black approached Mr. Clarke during the boarding process and asked him if he was the Milwaukee sheriff, according to court documents. Mr. Clarke responded affirmatively, and Mr. Black reacted by shaking his head and walking away, the documents said.
Mr. Clarke notified authorities afterwards and arranged to have Mr. Black questioned after their plane landed at the Milwaukee airport, according to court documents. Mr. Black later filed a formal complaint with the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, prompting the pair of Facebook posts at the center of his lawsuit.
“Next time [Black] or anyone else pulls this stunt on a plane they may get knocked out. The Sheriff … does not have to wait for some goof to assault him.
