MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee's police chief has confirmed the discipline for three officers in the arrest of Bucks player Sterling Brown. Chief Alfonso Morales said Friday that one officer was suspended for 15 days, a second was suspended for 10 days and a third for two days. Morales also says eight officers will receive a policy review. Police used a stun gun on Brown when officers detained him for a parking violation in January. Video of Brown's arrest was publicly released Wednesday.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - An environmental law center is challenging the approval of a plan to divert water from Lake Michigan for the new Foxconn plant. Midwest Environmental Advocates filed a petition Friday challenging the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' decision to approve a plan to pull millions of gallons of water from the lake daily. Foxconn began initial work on the site of its $10 billion plant in Mount Pleasant earlier this month. A DNR spokesman says the agency hasn't yet reviewed the court filing.

APPLETON, Wis. (AP) - A prosecutor says no charges will be filed against five Appleton police officers involved in a man's deadly shooting earlier this month. Outagamie County District Attorney Melinda Tempelis said Friday that the man had pointed a shotgun toward officers and urged them to fire at him. Tempelis says the officers feared "imminent death or great bodily harm," and that their use of deadly force was justified. Fifty-year-old David Robinson was shot by police outside his Appleton home on May 7.

HUDSON, Wis. (AP) - The manager of indie folk band Bon Iver says he is dropping out of the race for a Wisconsin congressional seat currently held by Republican Sean Duffy. Kyle Frenette made the announcement Friday on his campaign website. Frenette says he wanted to represent the people of Wisconsin's 7th District, but said now is not his time. Frenette has managed two-time Grammy winner Bon Iver and founder Justin Vernon since 2007. He was running as a Democrat in the northern Wisconsin district.
