Hostage Hoax

Written by

MENOMONIE, Wis. (AP) Two women have been arrested for obstruction after a hostage hoax unnecessarily mobilized SWAT officers in Dunn County.

Authorities say a woman texted her mother Wednesday, saying she was being held against her will by a man with a gun and a knife. Her mother called police, who started texting with the alleged victim. Dozens of officers, including the Eau Claire County Tactical Team, were called in for a potential hostage situation. A command post was established at a bank in Boyceville because authorities believed the woman was being held at a home in the area.

A sheriff's deputy spotted a woman matching the alleged victim's description in Wheeler and determined she had made up the hostage story.

Dunn County Sheriff Dennis Smith says a 27-year-old Minnesota woman is behind the hoax.

Wisconsin Storms

Written by

PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis. (AP) Severe storms with high winds moving through southwestern Wisconsin have knocked over campers and uprooted trees at a campground near Prairie du Chien.

Authorities say no one was injured when a possible tornado touched down at the Jelly Stone Campground in the town of Bagley Wednesday night. Fire Chief Fred White said several trailers are on their sides and downed power lines have left about half the town without power.

Crawford County emergency managers suspect the damage was caused by a tornado, but the National Weather Service has not confirmed that. Richland County Emergency Management officials say several businesses in Richland Center were damaged by the storm. In Trempealeau County, there are reports of scattered trees down and power outages.

Silver Star Award

Written by

CAMP DOUGLAS, Wis. (AP) A soldier from far northern Wisconsin will become the first member of the state's Army National Guard to receive a Silver Star Medal. Other soldiers from Wisconsin have received the award, but 1st Sgt. Gregory Fulton of Arbor Vitae is the first member of the National Guard to earn it.

Fulton will receive his medal during a formal ceremony Friday at Volk Field in Camp Douglas. He's being honored for his actions in 2009 when he helped members of the Afghan National Army clear a building filled with insurgents.

The Silver Star Medal is the third-highest military decoration for valor that can be awarded to a member of the U.S military. It's awarded for gallantry in action against an enemy of the U.S.
