According to the criminal complaint, Harris also admitted he was drinking. True suffered a serious head injury.

True was released from the hospital a couple days later and returned to his job the next week as a sports talk show host on Milwaukee's ESPN station WAUK. He also does play-by-play for Marquette University basketball, which he's done for more than 20 years.

True left Madison and WTDY (1480 AM) in Madison in November 1989 for WISN-AM in Milwaukee.
