He’s in a wheelchair, has a full cast on his arm and his jaw is wired shut.
Shooting suspect Allen Kruk doesn’t seem ready to go anywhere, after appearing before a La Crosse judge Thursday.
Judge Scott Horne isn’t taking chances, either, as Kruk is accused of shooting La Crosse policeman Dustin Darling back on Aug. 3.
Horne granted a prosecution request for $50,000 cash bond and set Kruk’s next court appearance for Sept. 6.
Kruk fired at Darling, hitting him in the chest — the officer had a bulletproof vest on — during a confrontation. Kruk was shot several times in return.
Kruk was in the hospital until being taken to jail Wednesday.
Horne suggested that a higher cash bond might even be justified.
