MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The seemingly never-ending saga of John Doe investigations related to Gov. Scott Walker has taken some new twists. The probe closed in 2015 and no charges were ever brought against Walker after the Wisconsin Supreme Court said no illegal campaign coordination happened. But after Attorney General Brad Schimel issued a report into a leak of secret documents, Republican legislative leaders have called for the resignation of the Ethics and Election commission administrators. They have refused.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police say a man fleeing from a traffic stop is dead after his car crashed into a tree.

The man who was driving the Impala died at the scene. A female passenger was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. Police say officers did not pursue the car. Police continue to investigate.

LAKE DELTON, Wis. (AP) - A hotel room fire forced guests to evacuate from Great Wolf Lodge in the Wisconsin Dells this weekend.
