Police respond to emergency situation at Lambeau Field

Police and emergency crews have descended on Lambeau Field in Green Bay.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports police had cordoned off the southern end of the stadium parking lot where multiple cars were damaged.

Green Bay police chief Andrew Smith announced that a suspect has been taken into custody, but it's for driving a auto into the loading dock at Lambeau Field and damaging several vehicles, via the Green Bay Press Gazette's Jeff Bollier. A man drove his vehicle into another auto, which became wedged underneath a minivan, and then tried to drive into the stadium's loading dock.

According to police, the suspect is an Asian male who is about 20 years old and lives in Green Bay. He then drove into the stadium and crashed into a storage area, but did not get onto the field. Smith added that no weapons - besides the vehicle - were involved and no one was injured.
