The Osage County Sheriff is under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
The Maries County Sheriff's Department said on June 26th they received a stalking and harassment complaint against Osage County Sheriff Michael Dixon.
That complaint came from a former female co-worker.
The investigation has now been turned over to the Missouri Highway Patrol.
Officials there said at this point, it's only a preliminary investigation.
They'll soon know if a full investigation is even warranted.
Sheriff Dixon has not been arrested and no charges are filed.
