Man dies after New Year's Rhinelander bar fight

by

RHINELANDER, Wis. (WSAU) -- The New Year’s Eve party turned out to be someone’s last party in Rhinelander. 

Rhinelander police say it started with an altercation outside of Sackett’s Bar at around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday. One person was severely injured, and taken to St. Mary’s Hospital. Another 48-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. Officers have not said if the two were fighting each other, or if they were fighting one or more others. Officers are withholding the name of the man until his family is notified.

The incident remains under investigation, and Rhinelander police want anyone with information about the crime or the incidents leading up to the death to contact them. ________________________________________________________________
