Crowbar Attack Sends One Brother to Hospital, One to Jail
A La Crosse man begins his recovery today from head wounds from a crow bar he received this week-end. Police say the man was brutally attacked by his drug-addled brother at about five on Sunday morning. They say 26 year-old Jerry Smith not only pummeled his brother in the head with the 12 inch crow bar but also threw stones and bricks through his windows at his apartment on north 10th street. Police found the brother lying on the ground with blood gushing from his head. Smith was also on the ground in the alley, with severely dilated pupils and spewing nearly incomprehensible stories.
