Cold, Homeless Guy Rescued, Arrested
La Crosse police have run across another person who might be a good candidate for a coming warming center for the homeless in the city. Police say this guy was stumbling down the street in blizzard conditions early Sunday morning. He'd fallen down a few times. Was covered with snow. Wearing only a t-shirt. Homeless guy. Said he'd been drinking at numerous bars downtown.. But otherwise was pretty incoherent with frostbite and hypothermia starting to set in and snow frozen to his face. Police took him to the hospital. At that point, the 53 year-old got a little cantankerous and uncooperative, forcing police to take him to jail.
