Suspect in La Crosse parking ramp attack will not get reduced bond



A stabbing suspect might not be released from the La Crosse jail very soon.


Judge Elliott Levine said Thursday in court he’s not willing to change the $2,500 cash bond for Robert Gardner, who’s accused of reckless endangerment.

Prosecutor Jessica Skemp objected to any change in bond, because of the nature of the crime, while Gardner’s attorney said his client wants one more chance to find housing outside the jail.

The 22-year-old Gardner allegedly cut a victim on the shoulder with a knife in January, after accusing the man of stealing a bike.

The fight happened in the Riverside parking ramp.
