Police release dramatic surveillance videos of Lambeau Field incident
GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Dramatic video released Friday in response to an open records request from FOX 11 shows a disgruntled former employee damaging vehicles and trying to run down former co-workers last December at Lambeau Field.
Police say Chay Vang, 41, was a former employee of a food service contractor at the stadium. He had recently been fired from his job when he returned to the south end of Lambeau Field Dec. 22. He smashed into several vehicles in the parking lot before chasing a co-worker into the stadium’s loading dock.
Video taken from the Don Hutson Center west of the stadium shows Vang's car, a white Pontiac Firebird, arriving in the parking lot and smashing into the other vehicles.
Video from the stadium's network parking lot shows the victim, along with another co-worker, running toward the guard shack of the loading dock to report Vang chasing them with his vehicle. The video then shows Vang's vehicle driving into the loading dock.
Video from the players' parking lot shows a wider view of the incident.
Another video shows Vang's vehicle entering the stadium's south lots.
No one was hurt in the incident, though it prompted a massive police response as one of the employees initially assumed Vang had a gun and would begin shooting. Police say no gun was found on Vang.
In a January letter to FOX 11, Vang wrote that he was unhappy that he was fired while the other man was not. He went to Lambeau because “I never got a chance to tell my side of the story” to supervisors. He saw his former co-workers in the parking lot and they “came running at me like they were going to gang up on me so I got angry & started to ram his blue Nissan. I was not there to hurt anybody, just scaring them.”
Earlier this month, Vang pleaded no contest to three counts: one count of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, and two counts of criminal damage to property. Four other counts were dismissed.
Vang was sentenced to 18 months in prison and five years extended supervision. He was also ordered to pay a total of $14.219.86 in restitution, and ordered to stay away from Lambeau Field.
