MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee County employee hired by former County Board President Lee Holloway has now been arrested on suspicion of forgery and misconduct in public office.

Freida Webb is the director of the county's Community Business Development Partners Program which secures county contracts for minority and female-owned businesses.

No formal charges have been filed. Sources tell CBS 58 News, Webb has been suspended without pay and that her office and work e-mail have been restricted at the request of the district attorney.
