MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A week after an attempted robbery in Fox Point that ended with a fatal shooting, there’s new video of a high-speed chase. It’s not from the Fox Point store, but a burglary of a different optical store a month earlier.
Dashcam video from around 5 a.m. on April 12th — and a Wauwatosa police officer is about to go on a high-speed chase. Just down the road was an optical store that had just been burglarized.
The officer made a u-turn to follow a suspicious vehicle. When the officer tries to catch up, the chase is on.
Two men eventually bailed from that car, — taking off in separate directions. For a moment, the officer follows the car before calling off the chase for safety.
The license plate eventually leads a detector to 20-year-old Tedric Sanders who admitted he is the driver…

Before Alexandra Shipp took on the role of Aaliyah, she was the heartbeat of Atlanta A&T’s marching band! The actress is starring in “Drumline 2: A New Beat” as Danielle “Dani” Bolton, who dreams of becoming the band’s first female lead percussionist.
She’ll be striving for her goal under Sean (played by Leonard Roberts), who has gone from drum section captain to band leader. Of course, Nick Cannon will be back as drumline alum Devon Miles, and the guys will show off their skills as a team to inspire the new class!
From the trailer, it looks like he’s done alright for himself. We’re getting famous producer vibe from him, but we’ll have to wait until fall to find out!
I’m also excited to see LeToya Luckett join the cast as Atlanta A&T’s hot, young dean Dr. Nia Phillips. She has some history with Sean…

SHEBOYGAN (WITI) — A half-naked toddler is found roaming a neighborhood in a dirty diaper. This happened last Saturday morning in Sheboygan. Several women found the boy and took care of him until police arrived. They then began to search for the parents.
A criminal complaint says the parents were out drinking with friends on Friday night — and had their teenage daughter watch the three-year-old at home.

The toddler’s mother is reluctant, but does continue to talk about what happened to the boy. The child has autism — and was not able to communicate. When police found the parents, a criminal complaint says they also found filthy living conditions…
