GREEN BAY - A driver has died after being pursued by police in Green Bay.

Officers were called to investigate a person trying to break into some vehicles in a west side neighborhood Sunday shortly before 10 p.m. Authorities say the person appeared to be intoxicated.

A short time later, officers tried to stop a vehicle that was operating erratically in the area. WLUK-TV says the driver started to pull over, but then took off and eventually jumped a curb and struck a tree. The vehicle split apart. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

Appleton police are investigating because the case is classified as an “officer-involved death.” The State Patrol is also investigating.

Donald Trump makes his first visit to Wisconsin as president on Tuesday -- leading us to check how he has rated on the Truth-O-Meter since entering the Oval Office.

PolitiFact Wisconsin finds that, much like when Trump was a candidate, a large share of the statements that have been checked rate low on the meter.

After more than 140 years, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is calling it quits. Video provided by Newsy Newslook

When Richard Bennett attended his first Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus performance in Sarasota, Fla., in 1949, the 9-year-old boy couldn't have guessed just how much the circus would become a part of his life.

He worked as a clown for many years and befriended the widow of one of the Ringling brothers living in Baraboo, eventually amassing a large collection of circus memorabilia that will be auctioned in Chicago next month.

Among the items are large, full-color posters advertising the circus coming to various towns — the oldest date back to the turn of the last century — as well as circus wagon wheels, cast iron circus toys and other memorabilia.

A committee pushing Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. to run against U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin in 2018 is touting Clarke's harsh attacks on Black Lives Matter.

The committee says Clarke referred to Black Lives Matter as a hate group and a terrorism movement, and uses "Lies" instead of "Lives" when he refers to it.

PolitiFact Wisconsin looks to see whether Clarke said those things.
