Big ol' fight at Ye Old Style Inn this week-end. When cops showed after midnight on Saturday, they figure more than two dozen people were in the street at the La Crosse south side bar. One arrest: 18 year-old Tavier Holling. They say Holling attacked a woman standing outside the bar smoking. Beat her with a hammer. After which, his mother got in a couple licks on the victim. The woman tells cops she doesn't know Holling or his mother and doesn't know why she was attacked. Holling's in trouble for the hammer attack and for spitting in the face of two cops during his arrest.
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.
