Fire Truck Bests Man in Punching Contest
By several accounts, the Oktoberfest aid station on the corner of third and Pearl was well-used this week-end. La Crosse police say they'll have firm numbers on those who took advantage of the station later this week. One of those who probably needed help didn't get it right away. They say an extremely drunk guy from Salem, Wisconsin punched a fire truck at the aid station as he stumbled by. Easily identifiable by how messed up and bloody his knuckles were. The fire truck, apparently, is okay.
