Alleged Cutter In Court Today
A man from La Crosse is due in court today, for allegedly stabbing a
housemate with a steak knife as they argued about rent money. Police say 55 year old James Curtis stabbed the victim above one of his eyes early last Saturday and then drove off.
Police say Curtis drove through a stop sign, lost control of his car, gave a false name and claimed he didn't stab the other man. His blood alcohol level was .18 when he was stopped. The stabbing victim was treated for a two inch cut.
Curtis is jailed on a $5,000 cash bond.
