Lake County Man Arrested on Wisconsin DOC Warrant

(Beach Park, IL) A man wanted in Wisconsin has been arrested in Lake County. The Lake County Sheriff’s weekly arrest report says Sean Walkington was picked up on September 29th in Beach Park for an outstanding parole violation warrant from the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. Prison records show that the 35-year-old was released from custody in August of 2017 on extended supervision. But court records out of Racine show an open case for operating a vehicle with a revoked license…and a modifier for being a repeat offender. Walkington was being held in the Lake County Jail until he was able to be transferred to Wisconsin DOC custody.

Illinois firm OKs $2.5M for alleged Louisiana violations

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency says an Illinois company has agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle safety charges from an explosion that killed three welders at a Louisiana containerboard mill in 2017, and for other alleged safety violations. A news release Thursday said the blast at the Packaging Corporation of America plant in DeRidder launched a 100,000-gallon storage tank over a six-story building. The proposed settlement and charges against the company based in Lake Forest, Illinois, were filed Thursday in federal court in Lake Charles, Louisiana. As is common in agreements reached before charges are filed, the company does not admit any liability. A judge will decide whether to approve the settlement after a 45-day comment period.
