Fired worker arrested in Lambeau Field disturbance


The former employee was arrested within minutes of police arriving on scene.

A man rammed his vehicle into five cars in the parking lot of Green Bay's famed Lambeau Field before chasing an employee with his auto and then crashing.

Multiple law enforcement and emergency agencies converged at Lambeau Field after an incident Friday afternoon.

The incident was initially reported as an active shooter situation, however, police are now saying that no people were hurt.

Smith says it started as a dispute between the suspect and another employee of the food services contractor. The suspect was sacked from his job earlier this month after an incident with the victim, according to officials.

Green Bay Police were called to Lambeau Field at about 1:07 p.m.

Two people who work in the stadium said they were told a man driving a vehicle hit one auto that became wedged beneath a minivan. The gate to the loading dock was temporarily up for deliveries, police said. He then drove into the stadium and crashed into a storage area, but did not get onto the field.

The stadium was not locked down at any point and police did not find any weapons, according to Police Chief Andrew Smith.

"There's absolutely nothing with tomorrow's game that's going to be affected at all", Smith said.
