GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A fired Lambeau Field food service employee will stand trial on accusations he chased down a former co-worker and another man with his car and rammed their vehicle and others.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Police say an officer shot and wounded an armed suspect and inadvertently struck another officer at the scene with gunfire. The shooting happened Thursday evening when police responded to a call and found a 48-year-old man armed with knives. Police say the officer fired his gun, striking the suspect in the leg and hitting the other officer in the foot.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - A former Milwaukee police officer who was acquitted last year in a fatal shooting that sparked two nights of riots has pleaded guilty to soliciting prostitution in an unrelated sexual assault case. Under the deal with Dominique Heaggan-Brown, prosecutors dropped the most serious charges of second-degree sexual assault. Those felonies by themselves carried decades-long maximum prison sentences if convicted. Heaggan-Brown now faces up to 15 years when he's sentenced on Feb. 20.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan has nearly $10 million on hand entering a 2018 re-election bid.

The sum includes $1.4 million raised in the final three months of 2017. Ryan's Democratic challengers include union ironworker Randy Bryce. His campaign raised $1.2 million in the final months of 2017.
