Here are the stories:

Racine County district attorney Rich Chiapete
(chuh-PEH-tee) says he is "ashamed and embarrassed" that he drove while
intoxicated and allegedly fled the scene of a crash on Friday night. Racine
Police say Chiapete was cited for crashing into a tree and traffic signal. In a
letter to the Journal Times of Racine, Chiapete states he was returning home
from a birthday party and panicked when the crash happened. He adds that he will
work hard to restore the community's faith in him and takes full responsibility
for his actions.


Wisconsin is part of a disturbing trend across the
U-S. The Department of Health Services reports that overdose deaths due to
heroin use jumped from 25 in 2003, to 134 in 2011... with the trend likely to go
up for 2014. Officials say the rise in heroin use could be linked to the rise in
cost and now hard-to-get prescription opiates. The department adds that heroin
overdoses are the most dangerous because users don't know how strong the dose is
or what's in it.


A West Virginia man has been charged with felony
stalking of a 13-year-old terminally ill girl. Waukesha Authorities say
30-year-old Shannon Bailey became infatuated with the teen after reading about
her on the social media site, CaringBridge. According to the complaint, Bailey
moved from West Virginia to Wisconsin to be closer to the teen. Her mother
reported to police that Bailey was harassing her daughter and believed he wanted
to marry her... an accusation Bailey denies. If convicted, he faces up to 18
months in prison and a 10-thousand dollar fine.
