La Crosse Man Punches Dog Before Drunk Driving Arrest

Among the long list of drunk drivers collared by La Crosse police this week-end was a guy who collected his fifth OWI.


Police say 54 year-old Thomas Costello drove his car into a northside fence, urinated in the parking lot and then picked up his dog by the tail and repeatedly punched it.  It was the dog punching that got the attention of a witness.  A little too brutal, apparently.  It was responding to that call that led to Costello's drunk driving arrest.  Police say he denies everything.   Except punching the dog.
