Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority conference at Monona Terrace in Madison.  Conference organizers say Starr appears to be OK.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the 78-year-old Starr was reportedly speaking coherently after the incident and left the convention center with his wife, Cherry.

Starr led the Green Bay Packers to five NFL Titles and two Super Bowl Championships.  He later coached the team from 1975 to 1983.
