Detective Hit With Drunk Driving
Georgeson is charged with his first O-W-I offense, which is not a crime in Wisconsin and has a civil forfeiture for a penalty. He has a January 24th court date....but that's if he wants to challenege the ticket.
The Wisconsin Association of Homicide Investigators named Georgeson its “Investigator of the Year” in April, for his probe into the drug-related murders of Joshua Alderman and Tabatha Nealy in a remote area of northern Juneau County in 2007.
Swearing at an Alzheimer's patient is bad enough......but pulling hair and banging heads......well that's downright nasty.
That's what 21 year old Tiffany Krantz of Grant County is facing after charges of abuse of a patient were leveled against her. Seems as though Krantz got mad when a patient set off a bed alarm twice back in March.......so she went in......cursed at the woman and was rough in getting her into a wheelchair.
If that wasn't enough, Krantz pulled the woman's hair and banged her head. She'll now look for another job as she awaits a January court hearing.
Guilty to Bank Robbery

Richmond Vs. The School Board
Boiler issues at Roosevelt Elementary School in Lacrosse has set off one northsider, who also sits on the city council and county board. Andrea Richmond says a promise is a promise......and it's time the school board stopped turning their backs on that school.
Richmond says the cost to bus students to Northwoods is at an extremely high cost and if students are not occupying those schools.....the issues needs to be addressed.
Richmond has started a petition to get the work done at Roosevelt and plans to present it sometime next month.
Teens Attack Inflatable, Christmas Fun
A llittle grinch in all of us?
Maybe not all of us are like the greenish Seussian ogre. But a disagreeably high amount of holiday grinch-like behaviour in some. Three teens in La Crosse have been ticketed for their anti-holiday actions. Police say a 16, 17 and 18 year-old have admitted to slashing inflatable lawn ornaments. One guy on the northside last week was sitting in his living room when a large, "pop" alerted him to rapidly collapsing Christmas inflatable in his yard. But, cops say, the high schoolers have slashed their way through blow-up giant ornaments from the southside of La Crosse to Onalaska. Hundreds of dollars worth. One kid told cops they were just doing it for fun and didn't see how their actions were hurting anyone.
