A 47 year-old guy in la Crosse faces a whole laundry list of charges after an apparent hit and run last night. Police say Carlos Williams was drunk when he rear-ended a car at red light downtown. They say Williams drove off after the accident, leaving behind two startled women, one of whom is seven months pregnant. Cops eventually chased Williams down but they say he tried to drive off with a cop half way inside the car. He had to be tazed twice before they could shackle him. Besides being liquored up, they say Williams had also taken some sleeping meds before getting behind the wheel of his car.
It's the first weather cancellation of the new school year for one area district...
Eastern Allamakee is dismissing the New Albin students at 12:45 and the Lansing students at 1 p.m., because the schools are too hot.
A local newspaper should find out Monday whether it can see papers dealing with Bryan Stanley's release...
Stanley has been a free man for over a year, since being released from Mendota Hospital. He was committed there shortly after killing three men at an Onalaska church in 1985. The La Crosse Tribune will make arguments in court today about the public interest in finding out whether it's safe for Stanley to be in the community. Relatives of Stanley's victims are upset that the La Crosse County Sheriff's Department neglected to tell them once Stanley was out of the hospital.
The La Crosse Loggers have some rebuilding to do...and it doesn't have to do with how the baseball team has been playing.
The third base dugout and part of the bleachers at the Loggers stadium in Copeland Park have been damaged by an early-morning fire on Sunday. No cause has been determined yet. One firefighter had a minor injury. Loggers owner Dan Kapanke spent part of the day on Sunday examining the damage to the stadium.
