A man who was shot in the arm by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest against police brutality in Wisconsin has filed a federal lawsuit alleging police did nothing to prevent the violence. Rittenhouse shot Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber and Gaige Grosskreutz during the protest in Kenosha on Aug. 25, 2020, after an officer shot Jacob Blake two days earlier. Rosenbaum and Huber died. Grosskreutz survived. Rittenhouse has argued he fired in self-defense after Rosenbaum and Huber attacked him and Grosskreutz approached him holding a handgun. Rittenhouse, who lives in Antioch, Illinois, is to stand trial next month on multiple counts, including homicide. Grosskreutz filed the lawsuit Thursday. An attorney representing Kenosha County and Sheriff David Beth says the allegations are false.

A search warrant says a man who rear-ended a car earlier this month, killing three teenagers, was driving with three times the legal limit of alcohol in his blood. A Dane County sheriff’s spokeswoman has said the man was speeding in his Jaguar when he rear-ended the teenagers’ Chevrolet Cruze in the town of Middleton on Oct. 2. The impact sent the teenagers’ car into a field, where it caught fire. Killed were Madison West High School senior Simon Bilessi and Middleton High School seniors Evan Kartochwill and Jack Miller. The sheriff's office has already recommended that the driver be charged with homicide.
