Caravan with security traveling northern Wis

(WAOW) – The Wisconsin State Patrol says it has provided three cars as security to help escort a government dignitary traveling in northern Wisconsin on Wednesday.

"We are involved with U.S. Capitol Police," said Lt. Steve Krueger of the State Patrol's Wausau office.

He declined further comment, referring questions to Capitol Police in Washington, D.C.

A person who saw the caravan on state Highway 51 north of Merrill described it as a motor home, black sports utility vehicles and State Trooper cars.

Officer Shennel Antrobus, a spokesman for Capitol Police in Washington, said he could release no details on the identity of the traveler needing the security and escort.

"We usually don't talk about or provide details on security," he said in a telephone interview.

Congress is currently on its summer recess. Gov. Scott Walker is also on vacation this week.
