Fight ends in shots fired
A landlord and tenant got into a fight Thursday night, resulting in the landlord firing a handgun at the tenant, but no one was hit, according to Lake Geneva police. Officers were called to the residence in the 700 block of North Street at about 11:53 p.m. Thursday and arrested Kevin Aumuller, 49, on charges of battery, criminal trespass to a dwelling, disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer, according to a police statement released Friday night.
Walker promotes tax credit
Gov. Scott Walker flew into Janesville on Friday to meet supporters and talk about the $100-per-minor-child tax credit he proposed Wednesday in his state of the state address. Parents would be able to claim the credits in May and June through a Department of Revenue website, he said. The money comes from a projected, unexpectedly large state budget surplus. The give-back is an acknowledgment that “the government took more of your money than it was supposed to, and now it’s giving it back to you,” Walker said.
