Okay, so there is an "I" in I-Team. But don't be fooled. There's more team than meets the eye. There is my producer, Steve Davis; our extraordinary editor, Dave Michuda; and some of the best photojournalists in the business.

As for the "I" - Well, I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri (Pattonville High School). I got my bachelors degree from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. And I've worked in both radio and television in Missouri, Iowa, and Wisconsin.

I love snow skiing, soccer, Texas Hold 'Em, the St. Louis Cardinals, and ice cold beer (not necessarily in that order).

I have a passion for my work. But there is no greater joy in my life than being a dad.

    Ozaukee school board blows $167,000 over $8,000 drainage fix

    FREDONIA  (WITI) — Down the drain. Taxpayers in the Northern Ozaukee School District have already spent more than $167,000 in legal fees in a lawsuit over an $8,300 stormwater drainage fix that board members blame on the district’s next door neighbor. Now, three years after filing the suit, the district is dropping its own case. But the defendant, a farmer named Kendall Thistle, says… not so fast. “You can’t imagine the amount of stress that gets put on a family […]

    Police tracking cell phones a violation of privacy? Wisconsin Supreme Court says “no”

    MADISON (WITI) — The Wisconsin Supreme Court sides with police in a pair of cases that involve government tracking of a suspect’s cell phone — but the court’s Chief Justice disagrees with the ruling — calling it a violation of privacy. The decision could impact everyone who carries a mobile phone. If you have a cell phone, you are literally carrying a real-time tracking device everywhere you go. But should police be able to use that information to track down suspected […]

    Backlog at state lab leaves drug-impaired drivers on the road

    BROWN DEER (WITI) — It’s no secret that Wisconsin has a serious problem with drunk driving. But a FOX6 Investigation finds a dramatic increase in drivers suspected of being on drugs. And that’s causing a dangerous backlog in drug testing. It could be that more drivers are getting high on pills or illegal street drugs, like heroin. Or, it could just be that cops are getting better at detecting it. Either way, the backlog in drug testing is putting justice […]

It has been two years since a FOX6 investigation exposed Brian Michaud as a con man, and now, the Wisconsin Department of Justice is getting involved. The Wisconsin Department of Justice announced on Tuesday, July 15th, that it is filing suit against […]

Now, FOX6 Investigator Bryan Polcyn has an exclusive one-on-one interview with the woman who is suing the sheriff. Tanya Weyker says all she ever wanted was an apology.

    Sheriff Clarke confronted after FOX6 investigation prompts federal lawsuit

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Accused of a cover-up, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and four of his deputies are named as co-defendants in a federal civil rights lawsuit — and it all started with a FOX6 investigation that garnered national attention. A sober driver was arrested for drunk driving in February of 2013 — and she’s still fighting back. When a Sheriff’s deputy T-boned her car last year, Tanya Weyker suffered more than a broken neck. She suffered the indignity of […]

    Lawmaker wants blood from parents involved in co-sleeping deaths

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — A Wisconsin lawmaker wants to make sure that parents who share a bed with a baby get tested for alcohol and drugs if the baby dies or is seriously harmed. It’s the latest development in a controversial effort to criminalize “co-sleeping while intoxicated.” Over the past three months, the FOX6 Investigators have reviewed the case files of dozens of Milwaukee area babies who died while sharing a sleeping space with an adult. We wanted to know, how […]

    “If there’s anyone who deserves the maximum sentence, it’s you:” So why did Tom Herro get just one year?

    MILWAUKEE COUNTY (WITI) — “If there’s anyone who deserves the maximum sentence, it’s you.” That’s what a judge said to an Oak Creek man as she sent him to prison for domestic violence. But in this case, even the maximum sentence may not be enough. “Your honor, I’ve made some mistakes in my past,” Tom Herro said in court. To say that Tom Herro has made some mistakes is like saying the New York Yankees have won a few baseball […]

    MILWAUKEE (WITI) — He’s battered the women and children in his life for decades. Now an Oak Creek man is back in jail. But for how long? You might think the mullet alone ought to be a crime, but this man doesn’t need any help racking up convictions. When it comes to domestic violence, Tom Herro is one of the state’s most prolific villains. “He’s not gonna stop,” said Bridgit Walters, Herro’s ex-wife. Herro is  a heating and air conditioning […]

    WAUKESHA (WITI) — A Waukesha School District employee is caught on surveillance turning a camera away from a warehouse full of equipment, then lying about it. The visual evidence is stunning, but a FOX6 investigation finds it took the district more than 440 days to get rid the worker for good. And not just any worker — he was the district locksmith. It’s not exactly the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels aren’t stored inside, but the property stored […]

    Lawmakers rack up $1.7 million in “legislative business” expenses

    MADISON (WITI) — You elect them. You pay their salaries. But you’re also paying for a whole lot more. Not only do Wisconsin lawmakers get $50,000 a year in base salary, they’re also reimbursed for expenses related to conducting their legislative business. They’re paid a “per diem”- a daily stipend meant to cover meals and lodging when they’re on state business in Madison – as well as mileage to drive to and from the Capitol. In addition, some lawmakers submit […]
