NOW: Fired food worker arrested after ramming vehicle at Lambeau

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Police say a fired food service worker rammed a former co-worker's car at Lambeau Field, bringing numerous law enforcement agencies to the Green Bay Packers' stadium.

Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith told reporters that the suspect was fired after an altercation with the co-worker earlier this month.

Smith says when the suspect saw the co-worker Friday, he smashed into that employee's vehicle, driving it under the back of a van.
Smith says the suspect then chased the employee into the loading dock area. He then drove into the stadium and crashed into a storage area, but did not get onto the field.

Smith says five vehicles were damaged, but no one was hurt. The suspect was arrested.

Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith said the driver could be facing a felony charge for an assault with a deadly weapon.

“It was certainly a dangerous thing to do,” Chief Smith said. “You could argue that his guy was trying to kill this former coworker.”
