'Somebody had a grudge': Hudson parole offices rammed, firebombed

Police in Hudson, Wisconsin, are asking for the public's help in finding someone who rammed a vehicle into the doors of the Probation and Parole building.

Authorities tell the Pioneer Press the culprit also started a fire by throwing an incendiary device into the building, and slashed the tires of state vehicles in the parking lot.

The fire was doused by a sprinkler system but the building sustained smoke and water damage.

Hudson Police Chief Marty Jensen tells KARE-11 the damage was likely done by someone with a vendetta against the probation office.

Anyone with information about the case or who noticed a car with front end damage leaving the area early Monday morning is encouraged to call the Hudson Police Department at 715-386-4771.
