Prosecutors in Monroe County have cleared the police officer who shot and killed a 21 year old man in October. Sparta police Sgt. Booker Ferguson has since returned to work.
Monroe County District Attorney Kevin Croninger says Ferguson was acting within the law when he shot and killed John Bartholomew.
Ferguson responded to a call from Bartholomew's father, who reported that his son was drinking and threatening his parents with weapons.
Croninger's report says Bartholomew was carrying two knives when he advanced upon Ferguson in the street. The report says the Bartholomew repeatedly ignored the officer's request to drop the knives, so Ferguson shot him three times. Croninger says Ferguson made the correct decision and that there wasn't time to use a less lethal weapon.

A crime suspect gets in trouble with the court, just by sitting at home. And drinking. Anthony T-J Smith of La Crosse isn't supposed to be drinking. For one thing, he's 19. Also, a judge has ordered Smith not to drink while he's under house arrest following a gas station robbery last month. City police found Smith drinking over the weekend, after they were called to his house when a neighbor complained that he was playing music too loud. Smith was released from jail, after showing up in court for bail-jumping.
When a movie called 'Fort McCoy' was being made in western Wisconsin, people in the tourism business were hoping it would be part of a wave of film production coming to the state.
But that was six years ago, and the wave didn't last long. Dave Clements of the La Crosse Convention and Visitor Bureau is disappointed that the Badger State hasn't been as aggressive as other states in trying to attract movie projects.
Clements says La Crosse still has a local film commission, available to help in case more movie companies want to shoot here. He's ready to promote 'Fort McCoy' if an announced summer release actually happens.
