A La Crosse man pleads not guilty to shooting a city police officer during a confrontation last August.
Allen Kruk will be scheduled for a trial on a reckless endangerment charge.
Kruk is accused of shooting La Crosse Officer Dustin Darling during a domestic disturbance at the 9th Street home of Kruk’s ex-wife.
La Crosse Police released body-cam footage of the incident:
Darling was wearing a bulletproof vest, and he returned fire, wounding Kruk.
Judge Ramona Gonzalez says she won’t reduce the $50,000 cash bond keeping Kruk in jail, but says she could rule differently if Kruk gets a permanent address in the area.
Kruk’s attorney Daniel Linehan wants his client released from jail on a signature bond, saying that Kruk has no money to post bail, and is not likely to have any soon.
