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

Green Bay Police Chief Andrew Smith said that both the suspect and the victim from today's dispute were at one point employees of the food service contractor used at the stadium.

The suspect - thought to be in his twenties - sought out his former co-worker in the auto park at Lambeau on Friday afternoon and rammed the victim's vehicle with his own.

ESPN reporter and Cover 2 contributor Rob Demovsky is citing a source that says a former stadium worker tried to get into the building through the loading dock.

Smith said the suspect found the victim sitting in his auto and then used his vehicle to hit the victim's auto.


Dozens of police rushed to the stadium after initial reports that there was an active shooter at one of the most visited tourist sites in northeast Wisconsin.

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. Pictures from outside the Packers' training facility showed a minivan resting atop another vehicle in the auto park.

Witnesses have told Action 2 News that someone was driving erratically in the parking lot.

The Packers host the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau on Saturday night. The county's bomb squad and the fire department's hazmat units were checking the suspect's auto, which remained inside the stadium, as a precaution.

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