A trial will be scheduled for the man arrested in La Crosse last week for allegedly shooting at a police officer.
A not guilty plea was filed for Curtis Ross II at a Tuesday hearing before Judge Scott Horne.
La Crosse Police Officer Hayden Halverson testified that he was following Ross near UW-La Crosse early on Feb. 22 in connection with a car theft, when he saw the 33-year-old apparently holding a gun.
“While following him, he extended his right arm back in my direction, and I observed a muzzle flash and heard a shot fired in my general direction,” Halverson told the court.
The officer was not hurt. A gun was found later in that area.
Ross was arrested while trying to hide behind or under a parked car. He has a previous conviction in Milwaukee for possessing a firearm.
Bond, last week, was initially set at $100,000 for Ross.
